The queen, the star and the mother.


I had so much fun painting and collageing this molly, It took a bit of time but it was worth it, I hope Theresa likes it! I used guesso, mail stamps, scrapbook papers, watercolors, acrylics, embellishments, and of course my favorite, glitter! First I scketched the faces, then collaged them with old pages from a french book, painted with watercolors with little water so I wouldn´t ruin the papers of the molly, then used the guesso to cover it a bit and then used acrylics to give them color here and there, then used the mail stamps to collage even more and the scrap papers to give form to the faces, then finished painting the faces and added the crown, the stars hearts and the final touch, the glitter in the star face, I hope everybody enjoys this! :D

Those pages are so beautiful! I love our Moly-X-17! I found my childhood collection of soviet stamps. I like your idea of using stamps as collage elements.
