Painted Ladies

Just playing around with some leftover paint and layering techniques. I’m trying to push myself to make more faces/people.

And a picture stolen from kittykill - I could have sworn I grabbed a photo of this lady, but I can’t find it.

Thanks for looking! :grin:


These are fabulous!

Love these. The second lady is my favorite. Are they on wood? They would make fabulous magnets.

Love the layering, colors, and textures! Your ladies came out great.


Haha…that’s exactly what they are! The rectangle ones anyway. They are on old plastic cards…various gift cards or arcade cards…with a magnet strip glued to the back.

The round one is a chipboard ATC blank, but I might add a magnet to the back of that one, too.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone! :blush:


These are beautiful! I love their serene faces… they go so well with your backgrounds.


Holy cow! I want one of these…very badly! They are so magical.

Did you stamp the words on tissue paper before gluing or something else? It makes it look ethereal. I totally want to try whatever it is you did!!! (hopefully you don’t mind)


Aw! Thank you! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Yep - it’s stamped tissue paper adhered with gel medium. I’d love to see your take on this!!! Your style is definitely an inspiration! :blush:

I love them! They are so serene. It makes me want to step into their world. I imagine they are feeling the sun on their faces, in a quiet moment.

WARNING: POST HIJACK (or moved if a mod wants to)

While adoring all the faces that Abbeeroad has painted, a couple of you used the term, “ethereal”. I don’t know what that word is or even how to pronounce it, so a googling I went. I quickly came up with an Ethereal Workshop which led me to a world of wow’s that is similar to what I’ve experienced here, amongst the Lettuce.

1st, Let uce start with a song to listen to on our adventure.

I love the big hair…they are little self-portraits in a way…it seems that style has evolved around reality!

They do give a sense of calm and contentment!
