I loved using this image of a doll's head in a recent journal page so I decided to add it to an ATC too! I made the background with distress re-inkers and Pearl Pigments which creates a luscious shimmery effect. I stamped Tim Holts and Ma Vinci stamps with distress inks and Stazon before adding the image. A bit of stitching, a bit of beeswax (to give the head an ethereal quality), a bit of rusty wire and ta-da! Finished!
Now, I have moaned much about the snow and the arctic conditions in general in the UK at the moment but even I have to admit that nature can create something very artistic and beautiful:
And I couldn't resist taking this photo of myself:
Just before I go, how are you all getting on with your 365 calendar challenge? If you haven't yet looked at the flickr group, do have a look here because there are a lot of examples on there already. You can upload your pics to the group at any time, whatever state of completion your calendar page is in!
Starting tomorrow, my hours at work are being doubled *gulp*. That should cramp my style a bit.........wish me luck.......
