SheArt Art Journal

When I was at Posh Scraps last weekend, Michelle had gotten the initial shipment of Christy Tomlinson's new line for Pink Paislee called SheArt and it was flying off the shelves! And since I was the one who told Michelle she had to order this line, I had to buy my fair share of the new product! I got the doily stencil and the 6 x 6 paper pack with two each of the different papers and the rub-ons and the paper dolls bits and pieces with a bunch of different images that you punch out and use as you see fit. And I couldn't wait to play with all of it! I used Golden Molding Paste to get some dimension using the SheArt doily stencil and the circles stencil I picked up last week at Michael's. Let it dry mostly on it's own, but since I'm not known for my patience, I ended up hitting it with the heat gun towards the end and it bubbled up some, but it added to the overall dimension I was going for, so I left it alone! Then I dabbed some spun sugar, wild honey and victorian velvet Distress Stains on my Kraft sheet and spritzed both sides of the journal pages with water and drug them thru the stains. Grabbed my Dyan Travelling Travis stamp set (I have two new sets on order, so you won't have to keep looking at the same three heads for much longer!) and stamped the three heads onto white cardstock and went a little crazy with Stickles and Liquid Pearls on them! Once they dried, I finished coloring in the faces with PrismaColor pencils and odorless mineral spirits and a stub. Used one of the rub-ons (the green wire-mesh looking spot on the lower left second page) and doodled on both pages . Using a few of the 6 x 6 pages, I cut out a house and doodled around the edges of it as well, then used a pencil lead to darken around the edges of the house and soften it a bit by rubbing my finger around the edges. Used my AP cartridge to cut out 6 banner pieces (with holes already in them!) and used some common household twine to string them up. Grabbed a few buttons from the ones I got from mom's friend Ruth and added them to the mix! I also found a package of 5 different patterned fabric ribbon at Posh and I loved the patterns, so there's a piece of it on the lower right of the first page. The sun, bird and butterfly are all from the SheArt paper dolls bits and pieces pack, as are the 3 sentiments I used.

I am also entering this inthe  Simon Says challenge for Anything Goes week.
