1625 Lovely Bag ~ a Sandra Caldwell New Release

Hi everyone. It's New Release Friday at Sandra Caldwell's Etsy shop and Facebook group. Each week she introduces us to the new images in the shop and gives the DT a chance to play with them. It's always a treat to see what everyone has created from these newbies. This week, I created an art journal page featuring the image called 1625 Lovely Bag and a favourite saying of my sister's and mine which we learned from our mom :)

The bag was coloured with Prismacolor pencils except for the inside which was Polychromos pencils. The dots are white paint pen. I just had to do polka dot lining since that's my fave. The bag was fussy cut without my usual white and black borders because I wanted ti to layer on top of the stand I was creating and the borders wouldn't have looked right. The display stand was the bottom of a die cut mannequin with a strip adhered along the top edge to make the shelf.

The background was a 6 x 8 inch rectangle of mixed media paper sprayed with Blush and Salmon Heidi Swapp Color Shine which I allowed to pool and drip. Brilliance Rocket Red Gold ink was used to apply both a woven background stamp and a Carabelle Studio Stars Background stamp. Jet Black Archival Ink was used to apply one of the images from Stampotique Originals Kate's Doodle Cube. To give the purse stand a place to rest (rather than a floating one), gray and white dotty washi tape applied to white card stock was adhered below it. 

The sentiment was printed on white card stock and matted with black. Foam tape was used to adhere the words and the purse to the background. Black pen outlining was done next to the washi and the two heart clips. It was also used to doodle the border around the page. To finish off, black Big Brush Pen was used to edge the background before it was matted on black card stock to frame it.
