I am beyond excited to share my project with you. I made an art journal page, with a....rather altered...version of the fantastic Blossom Beauty image.
Can you tel that I had soooooo much fun with her?!? It was a blast to rework her beautiful face and turn half of her into a sugar skull. The flowers are really what inspired me to do it. They are so big and beautiful. And all 3 flowers are from one stamp! I simple used the Stampendous dies that were made for the flowers to cut out the different versions.
You can see here what the 2 stamps in the set look like. Here's a closer look of the colored images. Feel free to click on any of my pictures to see them even bigger.
I colored the images with Spectrum Noir and Copic markers. And did you check out my background? That was all done with Dreamweaver Stencils! I used Houndstooth, Scales, and Amesterdam Flourish. I applied the Houndstooth and the Scales with a cosmetic sponge and Distress Inks in some of the brighter tones that I have. Then I used a bit of gesso on top. Then, using black acrylic paint and a small round stencil brush, I applied the flourish. I had a little bit of paint run under, so after the paint dried, I used a white pen to clean it up a bit. Last, I applied the face and flowers, and used a Martha Stewart border punch to create a choker-style necklace.
I hope you liked my art journal page. Below is the full hop list for today. I will have another piece for this fantastic collaboration later this week. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
