Yes it is me, Do not worry. Time for something a little different. Ok A lot different from my normal style.
I have been working on some more images for Lily over at the Octopode Factory, and today I can share with you one of her new 'Edwardian Lovely Ladies' there are for of these lovely ladies to choose from and I used Philomena.
You can head over to her Etsy shop HERE to find them as well as loads of other great images.
This was a great challenge for me and pushed me right out of my comfort zone but I really enjoyed it, something I never saw myself doing but I am really pleased with how she has turned out.
I decided to make a little fat page for a book that does not yet exist ;)
I cut some mount board to a six inch square and covered it with a very feminine paper from Graphic 45 I think. This involved me going around my local store with Philomena in hand holding her up against all the papers till I found one that worked.
The edges of the paper has been distressed with a little black soot distress ink and I added a couple of flowers from Studio 490, they have been given a very light go over with some spun sugar distress ink just to help tie them into the bg a little better.
Philomena has been coloured with Copics, more earthy and gentle colours than I normally go for but I was trying for elegant ;) she has been fussy cut and clear embossed twice and glued in place.
Finally to make the page, I measured out where I wanted my eyelets to go and used my cropodile to punch holes and add the metal eyes.
I will be back with more Octopode tomorrow as they start their new challenge on the Toff challenge blog.
Thanks for stopping by, Hope it was not to much of a shock to those that may know my blog ;)
hopefully Ill see you tomorrow xx
I would like to enter this into a couple of challenges.
