Just Hanging Around...




I've wanted to try this technique for sometime.. it's a variation on the hanging bird only the doll is made up before painting with gesso, because of this it would be difficult to stamp onto so the stamping is done on tissue paper and then glued in place with Golden Gel Matt medium.. it works quite well
The border stamp is a favourite from Zettiology. I love all things Circus at the moment so she was destined to be a trapeze artist
