shine and Yvonne's 'colour in my world' challenge at
Art Journal JourneyI have another A3 mixed media piece.
This is the last of my doll pieces. The background
was painted with acrylics, and then stamped and stenciled
with various BG stamps using white paint. The round spots
were stamped with the rubber on a pencil. I splashed some
gold ink onto it to give it more shine. The alphas are from LaBlanche.
Her hair was made with strips of vintage music paper, dipped
into my vintage brown ink and curled around a pencil. The
heart/body was cut from a graphic from the Graphics Fairy.
I added gem stones to the notes. I sewed the paper to a
background of cardstock to give it
more stability. The chipboard heart was painted with soft gold, and
the ribbon has a gold edge:
Before the embellishments:
For Tag Tuesday, Joan's lovely 'Steampunk' theme, I made another
tag from recycled materials. The BG was stamped with distress oxides
peacock feathers using a stamp from Paper Artsy:
