Hello everyone, thanks for dropping in. I don't know about you, but I so often get inspired by different blogs or things I find in places like Pinterest. I decided to start a new little blog series that I am going to call "Inspired by". The piece I am sharing today was inspired by Froebel Sternchen Susi who paints incredibly expressive faces almost every day.
During the weekend I had some time to play in my journal and decided to try out my new Distress Crayons and decided to include a face drawing.
I covered a double page in my journal with Tissue wrap and then with a thing layer of gesso.
I used a Bingo Stencil and grunge paste, did some background stamping, added some colour with a mix of Distress Crayons and then did some stencilling, wit the crayons too, rubbing the colour away with a baby wipe. Love the textural effect, definitely something to explore further.
Next I sketched a face with a Stabilo All pencil and added subtle bits of colour with the crayons and a tiny bit of white acrylic paint. I also added a few strips of Tissue Tape and more background stamping of course,
The heart was cut with a Sizzix/Tim Holtz die and then again coloured with the crayons and some stencilling.
Because I thought the girl looked quite sad, I gave her some tear drops, and finally the sentiment was computer generated and that was pretty much it.
Hope you are having a good week with some creative time in it..... Thanks for your visit like always
Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
