Flowers In Her Hair

In continuation of yesterday’s post, I discovered an exciting new way to complete my third collaged background from the fantastic, Australian artist, Toni Burt.  I discovered her YouTube videos and online classes from a friend on Instagram.

I started with the same background in my sketchbook but added some white and blue acrylic paint to mute it.  As you can see below:

After my paint dried, I covered my page with clear gesso to give it some “tooth” so I could draw my face on top.

I then went though the steps I learned in Toni’s class, “Flowers In Her Hair,” to create this beauty:


I hope you check out Toni’s classes at – I found the cost of her classes to be very reasonable for the amount of material she covers.

Cheers! 🌹

  4. Stunning. I want to give this a try. With the renovation and my Dad’s move and now my upcoming retirement and having to move all my stuff from school I’ve found little to no time for art. 😦
