I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas with lots of family, great food and lovely pressies. I did.. I got this :
I was very happy to find this under the tree and today I have been playing with them. I must say it is not as easy as it looks. Copics are much easier but I am impatient and I think I will probably learn if I persevere and practise..
I did an art journal today and I used the pencils for colouring Alice and the background of the signpost.
I painted the pages with blue, green, yellow and orange acrylic paint. I then painted over the top with white gesso which I dabbed with a baby wipe. You get a bit of a faded background that way. Next I used a Crafter's Workshop flower stencil and some Distress Inks in the same colours to create a border around the pages.
The background was stamped randomly with white, grey and black ink. (A complete list of all the stamps I used is at the bottom of this post). Next I stamped Alice and coloured her with my new pencils. I really enjoyed the process. The sentiment is from Alice in Wonderland and I hand wrote this on a piece of white card stock which I coloured also with colour pencils. The frame and pole of the sign were made from a scrap of dark brown card stock. Alice was glued on the page on top of some washi tape to ground her. The little spider webs were drawn by me. Lastly I stamped some crows, cut them out and adhered them too.
I used the following stamps (all from Stampotique):
I hope you like it and I gave you some inspiration....
