Me time..

Hello everyone,

This is my first project for the Visible Image Design Team. I am very happy to be here. Yay !!!!
I made an art journal page ; what else ???

I have used the fabulous  flower INKognito set and the sentiment called 'me time'.

This page was started with a piece of pattern paper by Prima Marketing from the Epiphany Collection called "Devine Exposure". I stamped the three flowers on it with a very light pink ink. Next I used a brayer and brayered some turquoise blue acrylic paints on the edges. I used two or three shades. I also used a little pink to give it some more interest. You can still see some of the pattern paper through the paints. I then took my Polychromos coloured pencils by Faber Castell and coloured over the flowers. I used three shades of pink and some yellow and orange. 
I then drew in the stems and coloured them with a black and a white gel pen. 
Lastly I stamped the sentiment on a piece of the same paper, coloured the edges with a pink coloured pencil, cut it into strips and adhered it to the page. 

That was it ! 

You will find the lovely stamps of Visible Image HERE...

  3. This is so pretty, I love the colours you used, and the colouring over the ink of the petals is such a great idea, and so pretty! I must try this technique too!

  4. What a fantastic first creation for Visible Image, Corrie - those flowers are really gorgeous, and I so agree with the sentiment!
