Blue and Ochre.
Over on the PaperArtsy blog, I am totally inspired by the "Blue and Ochre" theme. Fabulous colours that remind me of beautifully sunny days in the Mediterranean.
I began in a large journal by gluing a sewing pattern page down and framing it with manuscript pages.
I dabbed onto this some Pumpkin Soup fresco paint and blended it with my fingers. I aged everything with some Vintage photo inks.
Next, using some of my favourite stamps from PaperArtsy, of various faces, I stamped them around 2 edges using BluePrint Sketch Distress ink pad.
I then drew a face using Medium Brown Portfolio Pastel and a little black stabilo pencil.
I dabbed the Blueprint distress pad onto some Vintage lace and sprayed it with water and selected some blue and ochre buttons.
To finish, I added the word "Curiosity", from TH new Quote Chips.
The girl is looking wistfully back upon the people in her life.
I would also like to enter this piece into the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge of Buttons.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
