***WARNING: VERY VERBOSE AND PHOTOGRAPH HEAVY.***
Yes. That was quite a long title, wasn't it? I couldn't truncate it and so there you have it. Also, this will be quite a long post. I LOVE my creation and couldn't resist showing some details! :) I've been really loving this new freebie from A Day For Daisies and so when Clare at Miscanthus Crafts challenged us to use a digital image on our art journal page this time around, I knew I'd have to use it!!!
Here's what I came up with~
For these fabulous challenges~
I've used texture stamps by Kaiser Kraft (yes, Clare--I used it!), patterned paper by Recollections, paints from my stash (I believe they are all from Folk Art), butterfly rhinestones by Studio G, glitter glue from Studio 112, a beautiful digi by A Day For Daisies, chunky glitter, ink, and paper by Stampin' Up!. The sentiment was generated by me on the computer!
I started by filling in parts of the digi with shades of black and grey using a photo editing program. I then created my sentiment and printed these elements out. To create the background, I started by covering my paper with the green metallic paint then layering on a lighter then darker purple. I went a bit too overboard with the purples so I sponged some of the metallic green over that. After it all dried, I stamped 3 different patterns with the stamps--one in dark green, one in lighter green, and one in purple. I then added my image, sentiment, and torn paper corner. I wanted to add more texture so I added the glitter glue and for even MORE texture, I added chunky clear glitter to the earring and chunky green glitter to the hat. I also added rhinestones. I LOVE this page! Another one to frame and put up in the house! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by to look at my project! I hope you've been inspired to join in with these fabulous challenges and I hope that you take the time to look at all of Clare's fabulous art journaling videos! HUGS and happy crafting friends!
