Tamara Laporte has New Releases at ArtStacks!

Oh my goodness - I'm so excited to share my first post using Tamara Laporte's new releases over at ArtStacks! Tamara, known as willowing on Instagram, is an incredible artist and I'm thrilled to be able to create with her images.

To make my background I layered up random offcuts of my geli-prints. I adore these colours! I tore out the tissue lady from the page of images using a small wet paintbrush to get edges that blend in well then I adhered her with gel medium. I love how you can't see at all where the tissue is (no - it's not the large white rectangle - that's the geli-print paper underneath!) I used watercolours to add a few pops of colour to her lips and the butterfly/flower in her hair. I embellished her "Tam style" by adding a wing to her shoulder and an 'earring" to her ear. These, plus the flowers and the word "Shine" are all printed on tissue.

Gosh these images are wonderful to play with! They've only just been released. You can find them at the ArtStacks shop here.

Happy creating!
