Good Morning Folks
I wanted to share my newest Journal entry...I was inspired by Tattoos and flowers (of course!!)
My girl was colored on another page and cut out and placed on this layout. So I was able to paint the background black. Before I painted the background I added my paisley swirls (a stencil) and colored them with my copics.
Since I had my elements down then painted the background black it was hard getting the paint into all the corners perfectly...a little tip...from my art school years...use a black sharpie marker in on the tight and difficult to reach spots :-)
After painting the background black it looked a little too new so I sanded some of the black away to give it a older worn look.
I used a stencil for the circles...that's why they are so perfect LOL
My "girls" face is the same as my last "she girl" entry...but that is ok I was more focused on the "tattoo" idea. I would love to have flower tattoos all over me and wanted to express this in my entry. I also have also wanted glitter ...like real gems permanently tattooed around my eyes for constant bling...sahhhweeet!! I made her a blond because I love the vibrant yellow against the black background.
The flowers and leaves are tiny mini stamps I had in my stash...yup!! I know you have a stash with something you can use :-)
My girl's face was colored in with many layers of medium: pastels, colored pencils, paint, and pitt pens. I may have a video in the future on this. Right now so many do exist on youtube so check it out and have some fun :-)
Be sure to also check out eclectic Paperie for all your mixed media needs. It is an on-line store with LOTS to offer!!!
Peace Out and do some journaling...it's so freeing!!!!
