Hands down my most popular lesson in Mixing the Media class, I am so happy to bring to you the making of "Washi Tape Girl".
In this one hour, we will first draw, and then paint our way into cuteness!
The key to this project is the black gesso!! It is gorgeous and 1000% opaque and that's what makes this project so successful!
I love this project so much, I even had a pillow made from it (ok I actually had 2 made, but whateves...)!
I've seen many of my students make these over the years and every. single. one is ADORABLE!!!
