|Version no.1 ... with a Dylusions portrait from the colouring sheets.|
But it was soon finished! Thank goodness :) If Annabelle looks carefully on the back of my page (behind the coffee), she'll see a scruffy erased version of my face. By the time the chaos had been finished, I'd had enough of doing me and it didn't get painted. Sometimes enough is enough, especially when its about me! lol :)
And now, the process begins...
Darkroom Door Border Stamps, Art Studio, with Archival Ink in Potting Soil (icky brown but its going in the background so didn't matter).
Darkroom Door Background Stamp, Polka Dots, with Archival Ink (Black Marble by Dylusions... similar to AI Jet Black but in a mini sized inkpad).
fyi... all Background Stamps by Darkroom Door are also available in a smaller version called Texture Stamps. They're exactly the same size design but cut smaller with a rugged edge (instead of the rectangle).
rubber stamps I used ... Tim Holtz's Haunted House set with Dyan Reaveley's Anatomy of a Page, Everything's Rosy and Flight of Fancy. Just a few of my favourite things! That washi tape is Dylusions too, and the cute little sausage dog is from a set of animal Dy-Cuts.
I've stamped her onto the inked page, and then using a brush, water and kitchen paper, gently dabbed off the ink. It didn't take all the colour away but enough that I could add blue (London Blue, direct from the bottle with a brush) and let it turn green on its own. The tutu is Funky Fuchsia and London Blue. After she dried, I added a smidge of glitter to her shoes and crown. And also her tutu, dotting it everywhere!

Thank you so much Annabelle, for this insightful journey into my soul... an adventure that I'm glad is over.
I made Roz's ATCs shortly after finishing this... you can see why I was so limited in my colour choices for the beach scene. lol :)
There are a few parts of this page I'm really pleased with... the greeny yellow background, the frog and a few other bits - and the coffee mug is exactly the same as mine but different! lol :D
Thanks everyone for reading this far and checking out my artwork. I hope it makes you smile :)
Have a happy creative day!
