MiXed MeDia Friday is here and as always you can find me on the Artistcellar blog today!! Where has this week gone? Last week was crazy with all those blog hops and this week was quiet- but not to worry there are more prizes to be
won right around the corner as I have some blog hops next week so be sure to check back!
On this wonderful MiXed MeDiA Friday I am sharing a page from my
art journal book. If you have seen other pages from my book you know that
I don't always have writingbut there is always feeling. I think your art journal
book should be fun, creative and capture emotion; every book should be
different and unique to you. I started this book because I felt like I couldn't do
faces and it has taken on a life of it's own. But enough about me!
I used the Coral Berry and it was the perfect compliment to the
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Aquarelles (watercolor pencils).
I used the Aquarelles for the base color of her hair, lips and eyes then
went over it with the Silks. The Silks color is coral but it has a
lilac shimmer, which makes it look purplish in certain light! Cool stuff!
I used modeling paste for the wings- the ribbon flowers, pearls and
paper hearts were embedded while the paste was still wet.
Of course I had to add a little color to the flowers and added a little
Radient Rain to add the shine to the wings.
I am loving doing these MiXed MeDiA Fridays-
so many things to try, so little time! I hope you are trying some of these things at home!
And on a side note-
Can anybody tell me where I can get this multifaceted hair color in real life?
The foam tabs came in handy to pop up these arrows!
The stamp runner really came in handy as I did a lot of peice cutting for this layout.
I stamped the adhesive - just one small square on all the little cut pieces and put it down where I thought I might want it to go. I was still able to manipulate and change the layout until I had it "just right". Then I went back and added more adhesive with the runner.
Now, head on over to the lovely Daynas blog to see
what kind of spring craftiness she has in store!
