Hello there, welcome to my new followers, I hope you find some inspiration while you're here. I love reading that you've dropped by, so please leave me comments, I do try to respond to them.
On to my post....Mad for Markers has a month long challenge and for June we are asking you to do something different with your copic markers. Anything but a card or layout.
The design team has done some amazing projects which take you away from the norm so please go and check out all the fabulous ideas! There are some pretty neat entries too, although we might have scared you all off as only a few brave souls have entered so far.
I got this Urban Lily journal in a bulk selection of items as a bonus for renewing a magazine subscription. It was basically heavy chipboard with the internal pages in the ring binder. Great idea but it sat around for some time until I needed to make something else for the M4M challenge this month.
I really dug around in my stash and pulled out some things I've had for oh about 4 years. this stitched paper is one of them! The lace as well, then there were all the little pink rhinestones. Well they were just waiting around for the right project!
The image is a Some Odd Girl 'Royal'. Isn't she divine? She was such a joy to colour, I used soft violet shades for her and even her hair uses plum browns.
I've used some cotton lace around the edge and then added the metal filigree corners, I had to hold them down with pegs while the glue dried, but they held quite fast. I LOVE this X-Press It gel glue.
You know what I think I'll use my journal for? I'm going to keep track of my favourite copic colour combinations, hints and tips, techniques and ideas so that I have a 'go to' book to help kickstart that mojo.
