Shine Girl!

Happy Saturday eP'ers!   Today I'm sharing a new 2 page spread I recently made in my art journal but I have to give credit to our own fabulous Donna Marie because it was totally inspired by a fabulous video she posted last week, Flower Power Color Blast.  The video shows you have to create a wonderful background using gesso and ink sprays - it's really awesome!  After I watched it I sat right down and made this.

I just received this Prima girl stamp and was so excited to give her a try.  They really are such great stamps -perfect if you've been wanted to try some of your own "She Art" but don't think you can draw (you can! but you can also definitely start by using a stamp!).  The girl was stamped on book paper and then paper pieced and painted

I pretty much followed Donna Marie's video, you can even see how the gesso doesn't go all the way to the edge of the paper so there's a different in the color intensity there - love!  I used some Embossing Paste,  stencils, rubons, paint and even some old Unity stamps I had laying around.

I really loved the result, the colors make me happy and it was so fun to make!  Check out the Donna Marie's video and try it yourself!  Happy Saturday my friends!
