Ink sprays by Dylusions for Ranger
I drew this figure a while ago, spent ages colouring her in and then decided I didn't like her. She looked too 'cute', so I put her in with a pile of 'stuff' on my desk and forgot about her. But then when I was fiddling about I found her again, and tried her against this very grungy inky background and I thought she looked ok!
I like to mop up any spare ink left on stencils etc in my journal - a trick I learned from Dina Wakley and Dyan Reaveley. It ends up looking something like this and makes for a great background:
I added a few little extras to the background, but mostly I left it as it was, and even left some white space *gasp*! I'm not usually very good at leaving white space ;-)
I used Basic Backgrounds stamp by Dylusions on the heart and dress, and then scribbled over it with my new favourite - liquid pearls.
Now, I can't actually decide if this page is finished or not. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't.
I found a scrap of fabric that I coloured with Dylusions inks - can't decide whether to add it or not. What do you think?
If you fancy doing a bit of drawing in your art journal come and take a drawing class with me! See the details *here*.
Byee for now ....
