I am a frequent watcher of a weekly Ustream by Karen Ellis of The Art House Studio. In one of her streams she used the Brother Scan-N-Cut to make a mask and a stencil for a project involving Dr. Who and the phrase "Fezzes are cool." I knew straight away I wanted to do something with the technique with Lumpy Space Princess. I drew her on paper and cut her out for a mask and made a collage of cut out images of her from a magazine and some stickers, sealed it with gel medium and masked off her shape. I painted the negative space first with purple and later with dark blue because the purple didn't provide enough contrast. I over painted the collage as well to dull down some of the more distracting elements. Lastly, I painted her tagline on the bottom. Voilà!
