“Little Love” Mini Mixed Media

Little Love - Mini mixed media - girl media drawing paintingAnd there she was … a cute tiny girl. But she is also a bit of a tomboy with her dirty shirt and messy hair. Secretly she wrote “love” on the wall and now she is trying to look very innocent and o so sweet. And I think she is getting away with it

One afternoon this week, I was sitting at my desk staring at a box of little strung tags I bought a few weeks ago at a thrift store. They where very, very cheap and I had to take them home, having really no idea at all what to do with them. So for a couple of weeks they where standing there, until that one afternoon …

I got 1 of the 500 out of the box and just started (after I put on my reading glasses )
I took a stencil, stamped it with some VersaMark archival ink and used a few colors PanPastel to put on the ink. And there was the wall.

Then I took a sharp graphite pencil and started drawing. Of course the drawing became a girl … I colored her with Prismacolor pencils and wrote “love” with a Tombow acrylic pen.

As you can see she is about as high as a normal size paper clip. The size of the tag is 28 x 43 mm.

Love this little girl. 1 down, 499 to go!
