Meet Wally. He loves playing Uno, collecting gum wrappers, and washing his hair.
His base is an 8" x 8" gessoed wooden cradle board with watercolor paper affixed to the top using Yes! Paste (that stuff is magical, I swear). The background and monster on the paper were created using nearly every supply in my art arsenal: Brusho powders, gelatos, rubber stamps, distress inks, Gelly Roll pens, acrylic paint, watercolors, and probably a ton more items I’m forgetting. After he was glued, I went over his outlines with a teeny tiny paintbrush with a varnish type item called Goosebumps Spray for a raised, shiny effect.
