Ledger Girl on Black

Tonight over at the PaperArtsy blog I share some of the process involved in creating this girlie portrait onto black gesso. I used JOFY new Fresco Paint colours and also added a few images from Emma Godfrey's new stamp designs.

Journal Girl Page

Here is my art journal page for Week 7 of the documented life project. The theme was cover up so I worked on a gelli print background I had been saving and covered most of it up with my girl.

I am going to share my journal page over at Crafty Calendar, Our Creative Corner with their Tic Tac Toe (mine was stencils, stamps and paints) and AJED.

Paint Party Friday

Here is a quick step by step project using 1 of  my new images for PaperArtsy. I choose one of the trio of backgrounds I made which had the white space in a place I liked! I have used my favourite technique of late wiping through a stencil.

New Launch...
