First, I printed the Blanche image twice on white card stock (one for the main image and the second one to cut out the outside arm and the parrot. Then I printed the image again on multiple printed papers to be used to cut out all the items of the two images that I was going to layer/glue to the main image. I have used markers to color Blanche's head, arms, head, legs, feet and hair - and also the shadow under her chair. Everything else was fussy cut from the printed papers and glued on to the main image.
In this first photo, there is a lot that has already been done. I have cut out the main image - leaving a tiny border all around the outside, which will be colored with a marker to match the main color of the background paper that I will use. I have colored Blanche's face, arms (including the second outside arm), legs and feet with markers. The dress and the chair have been cut out from two of the printed papers and glued onto the main image and I have cut out and glued her shoes and started to fussy cut more of the blue printed images to glue to the piece Blanche is fussy cutting and the scraps falling over her lap and onto the floor by her feet.
