Hit Me With Your Best Pot ~ inspired by Vera Lane Studio images

Hi everyone. It's Tuesday and that means it's my turn to share a DT project I made for Vera Lane Studio. I created an art journal page featuring the teapot from Wonderland Accessories Bundle stamp set as well as an image from the Tea set. Tea is no longer in the shop but she is very similar to Coffee Lover Girl so you could substitute her if you wanted. I believe they are sisters if not twins :)

I printed Zara (tea girl) on white cardstock and coloured her with a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils, using a black Pitt pen to outline and add dots to her collar. The teapot was printed onto pink designer paper which has tiny white dots. The shading/highlighting and the flower were coloured with the same coloured pencils used on Zara. The teapot was fussy cut and matted with black but Zara was fussy cut leaving a narrow white border and then matted with black.

The background was covered with Mustard Seed and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks, blending where they overlapped. More of the Worn Lipstick Oxide Ink was sponged through Carabelle Studio Des Carres avec des ronds stencil. Jet Black Archival was used to apply a Viva Las Vegas Circle Text stamp and Worn Lipstick Oxide was used on another small circles stamp to add it in a few places. White Texture Paste was scraped through TCW Tiny Circles stencil to add dimension and texture. Once that was dry, pink dotty washi tape were adhered to the bottom of the page to give Zara and her teapot a place to stand. A silver teacup charm was popped up on foam and added to the outside end of that tape.

The wording was printed onto white cardstock and cut into individual words. These were then matted with black cardstock to help them stand out from the background. A simple border was doodled around the outside edge of the page and striped black and white washi tape was added to the opposite corners to help frame the page. Black Big Brush Pen was used to edge the three outside edges to complete the design.

Thanks for stopping by today. Zara, her teapot, and I appreciate that. Be sure to stop by both the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group and the VLS Etsy shop to check out the amazing images and how our talented community members feature them.

Life is good; so is art.
