I thought I would copy one of the characters I liked that I did in my other Artstronaut club journal on my printer. She is made from bits and pieces of the wonderful collage sheets that are a part of the club. Thought she deserved her own art journal page. I picked this one because I really like the tan colours that she is. I thought I would challenge myself to work in another set of colours and not the brights that I have been sort of stuck on. I started with the torn up pattern papers. I tore them roughly and then used Decoupage matte glue to adhere them in three spots. Then I blended the colours over the top of them so they were not just sitting on top. I used DecoArt Americana Burnt Sienna and Flesh Tone and blended them together. Then I used the Deep Burgundy with the Andy Skinner stencil Shedder. I had not used these colours and I really like the way they worked together. I then used the Andy Skinner Industrial Elements stencil and stenciled the arrow and the chevrons in Lamp Black. The words are from Dina Wakley affirmations stencil. Some Washi tape alphabet tape and then my main image was glued on. I went around her with NeocolourII and rubbed it in with my finger just to blend her into the page a bit.
I was pleased with this one it was a lovely change to go with the brown darker colour scheme.
Linking this up over at Paint Party Friday hi everyone..
Have a great day
