The Octopode Factory - Pink And Green
Today we are back over at The Octopode Factory and starting our new challenge, the theme this fortnight is Pink And Green.
We want to see any type of craft project as long as it is based around our theme.
You do not need to use an Octopode Factory image but if you do your name will go into the prize draw twice, and of course you can enter more than once x
For my project I made another page for my Dyan Reaveley Journal.
The image I have used is the Zombie Doll and she has been printed out on to 300gsm card and coloured with Copic's and clear embossed.
The background has been created with Decoart Products. I base coated the page with some green acrylic paint and used different colour acrylic paint for some stamping, I used one of Neil Walkers back ground stamps available at The Artistic Stamper as well as a couple of Tim Holtz stamps just to add some texture and interest.
I used one of Andy Skinners masks and applied acrylic paint through it and then grabbed my new favourite stencil which was kindly given to me as a b'day present this week by Suzanne .
I traced the outline and then used Decoart's Paper effects Pink Pearl This is kind of like a 3d paint pen, only it comes in a bottle and you get two nozzles to use, a thick and a thin, which is very thin. Something that if you had good handwriting would be pretty cool, sadly my handwriting sucks ;)
The wing design was filled in with the Paper Effects and left to dry.The Zombie Doll image was added and the Fly stamp was stamped randomly with black archival ink. I finished off by using the paper effects to randomly scribble across the page, more of the pink and a little of the peacock gold. you can see how thin the fine nozzle is in the smaller pictures.
Thank you so much for stopping by, We would love to see you over at The Octopode Factory this fortnight.
