Meet Miss Beryl

Miss Beryl is a 1920's Miss whose favourite colour is green and she loves her cloche hat with flower. Her favourite gemstone is beryl which has a hexagonal crystal system and comes in many colours including light green, yellow and red.

Mixed Media on Mixed Media Paper
42cm x 30cm = 16 1/2" x 12"

She was created on watercolour paper with charcoal, gesso, acrylic paints, gelli plate print clothes, hat, flower and necklace.  The background was created on mixed media paper with gelli plate print hexagonals and yes, that is home-made washi tape around the edges.

Miss Beryl is available for sale in my Etsy store.

Have you met Miss Amethyst?

Next week you will get to meet Miss Charlotte who is very close to my heart and has a special story to tell.


  1. I really like Ms Beryl. I like the contrast between the nose and the face and that pink on her cheeks! She so pretty. :)
