I was inspired to create her when I saw this months challenge picture.  I simply love steampunk and most of all I love creating Steampunk art.   She was sketched on water color paper and stands at 18 inches x 14 inches tall.  I used water colors, acrylic paints, Distress paints, and pastels.  When I first get started and my art doll is sketched I then start to place my chippies in place and at this point I determine which chippies Ill be using and how I will go about coloring them. Once my layout is somewhat in place I start the coloring process.  Everything gets colored separately. First my sketch, then roughly my background, as my image and background dry I then start to color my chippies.

For this art pcs I colored my chippies with tones of Gold, Rust, Turquoise, Chocolate brown, and gun metal acrylic paints.  Painted them randomly not perfect letting some colors over lap. Once everything is dry I start to adhere my chippies in place with E6000. Once everything is adhered and dry, I start to blend in my chippies and Doll to the background. O go over everything one more time with the same acrylic colors I used to color my chippies.

I let everything dry over night and when dry I give my entire surface a nice coat of medium gel to seal in all my chippies, and to seal in the colors. Once dry I go over some areas with a black marker.
