I have aways dabbled in mixing textiles and media, but this was my first project where someone had asked me to do a portrait. I experimented with splashes of water color and printed scrap booking paper. My friend, Heidi Fifield is a very talented singer, and wanted an album cover that would be original and different. I took two images of her and made black and white photo copies and started to collage.
I took water color and did smear techniques with the brush, but also puddles that I would drip the paint by holding up right. I also splashed the paint with the brush as well, to add different textures of paint.
