Hello! I am aware it has been so long I believe its been over a year. I had such a difficult patch in my life but now I'm back and feeling positive. In my personal life there had been so many changes... I moved to a new lovely flat, changed job positions and most of all had my little rainbow... my baby girl was born last October. So anyway... one of my New Year's Goals ( not resolutions) was to finish or restart things I quit and of course my blog and DT work was one of them. I have to say it would not be possible without lovely Lizzy, the owner of Oddball Arts. She has been really supportive when I needed it and even when I had not participated all that time in her team she kept me on. I had been 'dropped' from other teams but not Lizzy's. She is one amazing woman!
Anyway, new year and new challenge themed ' Winter tale'! Please pop in to the Oddball blog and look at some amazing inspirations created by the DT members. You can also find the amazing digital stamps by Lizzy here.
For my post I decided to do a mixed media page in my DT album. I used Dylusions sprays for the background and as the ink was still wet I sprinkled glitter on top in similar colours. Afterwards added some distress inks to the borders of the page and into the page. Using white acrylic pains and the mixed media stencil I added the white circles (snow). I sprayed it all with the clear adhesive. While it was drying I coloured the image of this kawaii Big Eye Owl on the tree using my Promarkers and white Posca pen for highlights. As best as I could I cut the image. I had torn some textured paper and glued it randomly changing the colours. Ten adhered the image and punched out some circles. Inked them with my Dew Drops chalk inks and black marker for the dots and lines. Added trees and snowflakes wood veneers and using liquid pearls added swirls. They are free handed so not perfect but that's what i Like. Messy and free. Printed the quote using my Dymo label maker and used Promarkers to shade them.
Very sinple but I love it. And here are some photos for you to see. Please come and join us at the Oddball Art blog challenge for your chance to win prizes.
