So there are two different challenges, a hard and an easy one. This month the hard is coloring curly hair and the easy is coloring with pink and brown. Because I was on such a time crunch this month I opted for the easy one.
Lets see....I started with two different digital stamps from Make-it-Crafty.
Here's the first:
I chose these two images because it was also "something girly" (the challenge's title, and the Facebook group challenge.) As a little girl I loved to swing, and so do my daughters, so I thought this would be perfect to do as something girly.
To make the final image I took the two into Photoshop; flipped Annalise, rotated her a little to line her up with the swing and removed some of the daffodils to come up with my final image. I held off coloring until my new favorite color pencils arrived, Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils. This was the first image I colored with them and I'm in love. They blend beautifully and lay down easily, by far the best pencils I've used. To top it off all of Faber-Castell's lines match so you can use markers, pencils and watercolors with ease. So excited to do more with their products.
Any who....I used my finial colored image to alter a medium sized Moleskin lined journal. Added some new Prima Marketing Inc. flowers to it. Throw in some papers, Tim Holtz Distress Stickles, glitter, metal frame, Silks paints, leaves and a fun inspiring saying and you get the finished journal. By the way the cute little saying is "In a sky full of stars it's amazing to find that each is one-of-a-kind."
I hope you like it...
