Acrylic on Canvas - 22 x 18


Tionne is an original mixed-media collage painting, and part of the Glitter Gals paint series, created in 2018-2019.

The painting was completed in a series of stages, creating unique textures, and enhancing the beauty of this painting.


  • Stage 1: Collage - variety of papers, glue, and gel medium over a prepared canvas.
  • Stage 2: Background - a series of brush strokes, and painting techniques using various acrylic paint pigment blends.
  • Stage 3: Subject painting - the portrait is sketched with pastel crayon, then painted with acrylic paint. This piece is inspired by celebrity, and high profile people, and is part of the more realistic styled paintings in the Glitter Gal series.
  • Stage 4: Metal, fabric, and other accessories, such as false eyelashes, are added for texture, as well as to enhance characteristics of the painting subject.
  • Stage 5: Shadowing with acrylic paint, and glitter is added to the painting for sparkle.
  • Stage 6: Acrylic pouring medium is added to give the subject of the painting shine, and to seal the accessories of the collage.

The process to create this painting takes about 5 to 7 days to complete. The painting can be hung with or without framing.

The accessories, fabric, and glitter used in the painting are a tribute to my mother, who passed away in September of 2017.

Tionne is the fifteenth painting in the mixed-media collage series, created by Deborah Marsh of Debbie's Living Canvas.
