I found the Dylusions Facebook Challenge last year and actually joined in for the August 2015 challenge, but for various reasons I've not played along since. So I printed off a list of all the past challenges - I'm going to catch up - and decided to start with the current challenge.
In my journal I had a page that I'd inked and ghosted last year - mostly in shades of turquoise with a splash of lime. I'd used a large Stencil Girl peacock feather for the main ghosted image, and added some skulls in blue. Yesterday I saw the new Day of the Dead stamps and decided that this image would be perfect.
I stamped her in black permanent ink on white card and coloured her with a mixutre of Staedtler Aquarell pencils and Dylusions inks. I then carefully cut her out and edged the image with a black marker. I used Tangerine Dream paint to add the words from the Halloween Script stencil. Once dry I outlined the words with a black Fude pen. I lightly spritzed some Lindy Stardust over the page - sadly you can't see the shimmer here, but it's fab! I added some more layers to the background by lightly going over a cobweb stencil with black soot ink and finished by added some more small skulls with Tangerine Dream paint. I went around the image with a black pencil which I smudged to blend into the background. I finished by adding a light dusting of black ink around the page - but you can't really see it here, so I'll add more later.
Above is a close up photo of the main image - you can just about see the Starburst spray here! I'm going to submit this page to the current Left of Centre Challenge - LOC#145 where the theme is Altered Images or Left of Centre. I think I've got it covered both ways!!
I had so much fun creating this page and I'm going to be doing more soon! That's all for now. See you soon.
Lovely journal page!! Loving the bright vibrant background and have a thing for day of the dead and skeletons. Lovely project. Thanks for joining us over at LOC#145 - Altered Images. Michelle DT xx
