Layering Effects of My Self Portrait

Continuing work on self portrait using mixed media. After drawing my self portrait I transfered it to a beige cardstock and colored and shaded with colored pencil. Painted the whites of the eyes, and teeth. I glued down the picture on a canvas that was prepared with acrylic and gesso. I tore pieces of paper and layered it letting this dry overnight.
Next I used paints and brushed over the layer to give it a glowing effect. Letting this dry completely I used more paint and stamps.
I used some embellishments with the flowers and jewels.
There are many more layers to come just showing how this process and the many steps I take to get the effect I want. I will post more pictures as I continue.
