Hi Moira here and this week I have a journal page to share. The idea behind it was that having failed yet again to win the lottery, be nominated for a Nobel prize, put an end to animal cruelty, lose 3 stone, climb Mount Everest, clean the house, become Miss World, end world hunger and invent time travel to learn be content with what I have and have achieved not what I don’t have or have not achieved (at least yet).
- There was quite a bit of
leakage through the seam on the page from the next door page so I stuck
some tape across the seam and in various places on the page.
- Random stamping using the
larger of my background stamps in black.
- Adding the 4 Dylusion
paints moving and blending them with a baby wipe.This knocks back the initial stamping but it is still there
- More random stamping with
the smaller background stamps using the Archival inks which toned with the
- Using white paint to
create a dress form and Titan Biff for the face and arms.
- Using the Prima Water
Soluble oil pastels to add some colour to the dress. At this stage I had an issue about the
face, I did not have a stamp the right size and all my attempts to draw a
face that small were hideous so a quick call to a pal who let me use a
photo of her face instead phew!
- At this stage my camera
lost charge so no more process pics sorry. Next stage was adding hair with
black paint and although the purple doesn’t show it stops the hair looking
too flat, adding a few curls with the Fude Pen.
- More details on the dress
stamping with a pattern stamp for texture, adding shade and highlights
with the Pitt Brush Pens. At this point I thought the body looked too
short so extended the dress to the bottom of the page.
- Adding rub ons, a collage
bird image and the words die cut in black card.
- Adding final detail with white Signo Pen on the black letters and shaking the white sharpie all over for some white splashes.
