My Story

Hello!  It's Robin Redd (a.k.a. RockinReddRobin!)
I found this video tutorial online and thought this journal page is perfect for my Sin City Stamps!

I'm, very much, into learning how to draw faces.  This one in particular is a 'whimsical' face.

After sketching out the face, shoulders and hair, I  went to my collage stash.  My collage stash are papers I painted myself at various times via various methods, i.e. Gelli Print, random painting, stencils.

I chose to use this one.  I found it fitting for this wonderful summer season we are in.

I tore up my collage paper into many, many quarter-size pieces.

Then, I collaged them onto the background of my girl.

I still can't get too far out of the box with my 'whimsical' look.  
Although, she's not completely realistic, she's not as whimsical as I'd like.

I used my Art Journaling with Terri Sproul 2 stamps.

After stamping with a coordinating color, I embossed with a sparkly, clear embossing powder.
Because the ink was going onto the paint and gel medium that I laid onto the page, 
first, the ink stayed wet a while.  
I sprinkled, liberally, onto the stamped images and shook the excess off, 
back into the embossing powder container.

I heat set the embossing powder slowly, to keep the collage papers and paint from bubbling up.

Look how pretty this lovely swirl looks after the heat embossing is complete. 

This is the great set I used for this art journal page.  Perfect!

I hope I have inspired you to create something today.

Until next time...
