I am back today with a just for fun journal page. Simon Says Stamp blog is having a Birthday challenge and since I really don't have anyone having a birthday soon I decided to create an art journal page. I came across a quote by George Harrison and knew exactly what I wanted to create.
I started out by painting the page with yellow and red acrylic paint.
I used various magazine images, a world map, and some packing tape transfers for my collage. The girl's face came from the Graphics Fairy.
My girl's arms are colored with a fluorescent paint marker and then stamped with a Tim Holtz background stamp. I have highlighted her hair, eyes, lips, and the cupcake with various Sukura pens
I then went in with various markers and pens to add more interest to the page. I also added some stamping from a Dylusions stamp.
Last step was the saying which I wrote with a black pen and then colored in some of the open letters with a with white paint pen.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out Simon Says Stamp for more inspiration.
