IMAGINE... 29

Mona Pendleton | Friday, October 17, 2014 @ 10:38 AM | , , , ,


Hi there! I hope you are having a great one! I have the day off from work so before heading out the door to the gym, I sat down to complete a project I have been working on:

I started by painting my girls face on a piece of watercolor paper. Before giving her a hair do, I trimmed around her neck and head so then I could adhere her to a 12 x 12 layout:
The background was a naked 12 x 12 piece of watercolor paper when I started! I applied a variety of paints using a squeegee, sponge and the following three stencils which were given to me and were designed by the talented Kasia from Poland for The Crafter's Workshop: TCW495 Sea Bubbles, TCW493 Folk Art Flower and TCW 491 XOX:
I also randomly stamped fun images from a couple of stamp sets also designed by Kasia:
I joined along with the the CSI 143 challenge and the scrapki-wyzwaniowo October challenge where the theme is: In my head.

Here's how I solved the case:

The Scheme: I used all 5 colors
The Evidence (at least 2): mixed media, collage, birdcage, pen work, flowers, leaves, circles, butterflies and I cut out my girl's head

The Testimony: I documented something on my min and I handwrote my story directly on my layout
The Sketch: followed

Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
