February Hump Day Hop: Some Like it HOT!

Greetings! It's the last Wednesday of the month, so it's time for the Bombshell Stamp Hump Day Hop! This month, I decided that the theme would be "Some Like it HOT!" I cannot wait to see how the other participants interpreted this theme. I chose to make an art journal page.

I started off with my Pirate's Life Bombshell, and I added a few of the images from the Holiday Accessory set. I thought that my cauldron needed some smoke, so I used the flame from the Hula Girl set.

I colored my images with my Spectrum Noirs and Copics. I cut everything out, and then started to play with my background. I used a combination of inks, paints, and stencils.  I also decided to add "Drink Up" from the Man's Ruin set.

I loved doing the background. Though I do think it may need a few more layers....I need to work on that a bit. Pushing those layers further. But, I still think my Bombshell is hot! And, who doesn't enjoy a hot beverage?
And now, it's time to send you off! Please be sure to visit all of the stops along the hop, and leave everyone some love. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Good job. I'm interested to see the rest of your art journal! I thought about using her for this project too.

Alison, I love the journal page. And turning the pirate into a witch is brilliant! I keep saying I want to do an art journal but.... LOL

Your journal page is fabulous. I love the scene you put together and how you colored it.

I also love the background you created for her.

I told you that the "Holiday Accessory" set was incredibly useful!!!

By the way, I wouldn't drink anything from a cauldron, unless someone used it to mix margaritas!

Great use of the pirate image for the witch! And I like the flames for the smoke/steam from the cauldron.
