The Scent of a Woman....

Hi BPM Fans!!
I hope you are enjoying this months blog posts with our fantasy and layered techniques themes!
When I think of fantasy, fairies & magic I also think whimsical, fun & imaginative sooooo I've created a quirky character using stamps and collage elements and added her to a mixed media art journal page!
I've also made a layered background which is one of my go to techniques for backgrounds in my journals!
I love that this idea could be used to make a birthday card or postcard or even a bookmark!



With so many new stamps released last month you have such a huge choice to create with!!!!
Make sure you head to the store and grab your favs!!!

Supplies:
Blank Page Muse Stamps: Vintage Scents Perfume Ephemera Set
Journal or Page Insert or Blank Card
Scrap patterned papers, paper doily, tissue paper, picture cut outs, plain pink paper, white card
Acrylic paints
Black Memento Ink
Paper Doll Collage Elements (Art Tea Life Collage Sheet used here)
Embellishments: muslin cloth scraps, computer generated wording, diamantis
Tools: scissors, glue, matt medium, sponge, gel medium, posca pen, colouring pens

Instructions:
Start by stamping one of the perfume bottles onto white card with black ink, colour image - Copic Markers used here - then fussy cut the stamped image.



Choose another of the perfume bottles and stamp on some lightly coloured paper - pale pink textured paper used here - and fussy cut bottles.


Fussy cut paper doll elements from your collage sheet - used here legs, head, sash & bow.


Glue all of your paper doll elements together ready to add to your page background. Computer print your wording and cut out - alternatively you may like to use Blank Page Muse word stamps!


 Next step is create your page background using scrap bits & pieces: plain & patterned tissue paper, paper doily, old book pages, picture cut outs etc. A great way to use your scraps!


Adhere the "bits & pieces" over the page with glue or matt medium - leave some white space around the edge - overlap the pieces - no need to be neat - messy is best! Allow to dry.


Use acrylic paints and a sponge to spread paint over the page - use a thin layer so the paint is translucent and you can still see the patterned papers underneath. Allow to dry.


Arrange your paper doll, perfume bottles, computer generated wording and muslin cloth scraps on the page and adhere. Add a couple of sparkly stick on gems for some bling and you have completed your page!

Thank you for joining me today - I hope you like this fun page!
Have fun stamping & creating!
Sharon
