Bonny Bonita!


Today I'm sharing a quick journal page I created to practise my colouring using my spectrum noir pencils.

I created it in my small Dylusions journal:

Started with Prima 3D gloss gel by Finn through a stencil and once dry used various Dylusions sprays - I didn't really pay attention to what the colours were!

Stamping in the background is done with black archival and I used Finn's new cling stamps from her don't forget to fly plate.

I added some black lines with Fresco Little Black Dress paint and a card, added some torn Tim Holtz tape for her to stand on and inked the edges with Black Soot distress ink.

Finally I added Bonita to the page - she is a digi stamp from The Octopode Factory - I coloured her using Spectrum Noir pencils, cut her out and edged her with black pen to get rid of those white edges.

I'd like to enter my page in the first challenge on the newly branded blog - mixed media world. The first challenge is anything goes. Click here to check out their new blog and to see what the DT have been upto!

Thanks for looking,
