Journal Page

It has been a while since I did an art journal page.  Clare's second PaperArtsy GDT project this semester inspired me to get into it again. 
I started with some junk cardboard- the backing board of a paper pack I have used up.  Onto this I painted gesso and then acrylic paints to make the background.  Next I stamped Clare' PA stamps in black ink.  I also stamped one of the sentiments onto white paper for the text.  This was cut out and stuck down.
 There are so many things in life that we come away from thinking 'I wish I had said...' (or the opposite- 'I wish I hadn't said ...').
OK, so after putting up with my attempt at the 29 faces in September you were probably hoping I wouldn't *ever* draw another- lol!  But I was tempted.  Not sure she is my best :-(  Eyes a bit too larger perhaps? 
Anyway, she was coloured with Promarkers and then detailed with pencil crayons.
The little embellishments are made from shrink plastic (Clare's PA stamps and the coloured with Promarkers). I added a gem to the flowers to finish them off.
While I had the shrink plastic and heat gun out I decided to have another go at earrings (see Saturday's post for my 1st attempt).  These ones turned out better I think.

She's great Louise, and there's nothing wrong with your drawing at all.

Love the earrings. What a great idea.

I think she is great - my fave faces are ones that are whimsical or not realistic! Earrings are great too x
