Here is my latest DT project for Artistic Inspirations challenge 74. I chose the image from Delicious Doodles as it was very different and I loved it, but having chosen I then found it really difficult to know what to do with it!!! Then I joined the Journal 52 group, and this seemed the perfect image to make a cover for my new hand made Art Journal and the idea which popped into my head that 'Words Are Immortal' fitted beautifully.
I used recycled cardboard to make the cover and followed a clip o YouTube to find out how to bind the pages inside. I painted the cover with various cheap emulsions purchased on sale at the local DIY store, had fun using cut'n'dry foam, a toothbrush and dripping techniques.
Then I stamped and embossed the roses which are from Visible Image (and the 'immortal' word too) onto pink paper, cut them out and layered them up. I enlarged and printed the beautiful main image from Delicious Doodles, several times. The main stone is coloured with Promarkers & Spectrum Noir pens. The wings were embossed with glitter Wow Powder, Then all layered up and put together.
I'll enter this into the latest Hels Sheridan challenge which is Wings,(http://pinkleart.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/sunday-stamper-week-290-on-wings-of-love.html )been dying to do one for weeks but just been so frantic with 'life'!
