Hi there! Today I have a page to share in my art journal featuring a girl that I painted using a wide variety of beautiful and shimmery ColourArte products including Silks Acrylic Glazes and Twinkling H2o's.
I colored using many colors and layers of Twinkling H2o's:
The background was created using a variety of Silks Acrylic Glazes. Once dry, I randomly stamped images using Stampin' Up stamps from my collection that are more than 10 years old!:
The sentiment is a Tim Holtz sticker:
I embellished her hair, with a stamped / embossed / die cut butterfly and a flower from my stash:

I joined along with the following challenges: For color inspiration, I took on the ColourQ colour challenge:
I'm also entering my page in the May Mixed Media Place Creative Gym Exercise 8 where the theme is Drawing and I'm linking it to the Art it Friday ~ Show Your Face gallery.
