Catching Flowers

This painting is a large one for me, 16" x 20". I used old sewing pattern paper for her dress that I painted over and made a pattern with a stamp. I cut out paper flowers for her waist, hair and the red ones floating to her hand. The background has some tissue paper in a few areas for texture. There are glazes of colors and stamps used for the floating flowers. It is finished with a gloss varnish. The area around her waist flower shows a shiny reflection, my photographic skills aren't so hot...sorry about that! I envision her with a vintage type of cocktail dress on with the full skirt, I absolutely love vintage everything!!!
