Hey Baby by Carol Fox



I have done a page in my smaller journal this week using the Betty Grable stamp by the Deep Red Cling Company. 


This is what I did


·       I misted my page with water, sprayed it with white Dylusions followed by Bubble gum Pink while it was still wet and let this dry.

·       I first used a Honeycomb stencil and gesso on my page, and when this was dry various other stencils and paint to add interest and texture to the background. I finished with black paint through the star stencil also using this to add the details in the corner of the page.

·       I stamped my image onto cream paper and glued this into position before colouring it in, using my favourite Neo-colour for the skin and Gelatos for the rest of it.

·       I added three strips of washi tape to the page.

·       I added stitching with my sewing machine.

·       I have a very old plastic stencil that I used to lightly pencil my words onto the page, I then went over these with Black Enamel Accents to really make them pop off the page.
