Paint your own reality

Hello everyone, 

I was asked to make some samples for the Hochanda TV shows of AALL & Create on April 3rd and of course I made some. It is so exciting to see your samples on TV! 

I forgot to take WIP photos unfortunately but I'll try and explain here how I made this. This flag came from a pad full of flags. I just tore one out. I glued dictionary paper on it and then embossed it with Seth Apther's Vintage Beeswax Baked Texture embossing powder. I did two layers. I then inked the edges of the flag with brown Archival ink. 
Next I stencilled the blue circles on it using the Digital Bubbles stencil. I heated it again and the paint sort of goes into the embossing layer. 
I then stamped Frida and the sentiment, coloured Frida, cut her out and adhered her to the flag. I also inked up the word strips of the sentiment and glued them on too. 

I have used the following stamp:

#184 - Little Frida


#45 Digital bubbles
