Wink ~ inspired by a Vera Lane Studio image
Hi everyone! Wow! Full moon, time change, and Friday 13th all in the same week...that's a challenge but no worries...this sweet image from the Daisy and Wink set by Vera Lane Studio has a wonderful strategy for dealing with all three and she's sharing it today on an art journal page.
I coloured Wink with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils, fussy cutting her to leave a narrow white border. She was then matted with black cardstock and fussy cut a second time leaving a narrow black border which helps her stand out against any background.
Colour was added to the 6x6 inch watercolour paper with Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Inks. Jet Black Archival Ink was sponged through AALL & Create Lotza Dotz stencil with white Posca Paint Pen dots added inside some of the circles and black pen added as messy outlines. |A Viva Las Vegas background stamp was applied in a few places using Magenta Hue Archival Ink. The same ink was used to stamp some script to add more texture. Black gesso lines were added with a gift card once the two strips of washi were adhered to ground Wink.
The wording was printed onto white cardstock, matted with black. Once it was in place and Wink was situated, pieces of drywall mesh were added to add still more texture in three places. A die cut star topped with a threaded button and matted with black cardstock was adhered to the top left corner to balance the design. The page was finished by edging the page with Neocolor II crayon activated with a waterbrush, as well as a doodled border and black Big Brush pen to darken the page edges.
