Design Team - Gloria Sailor Jim Journal Page.

Morning all, I hope you all had a lovely weekend?
we are back to the start with our Design Team Members as today,
It's Gloria's turn to! 

I'm back today with an art journal page I made using
the Sailor image from Spesh Ink.

I began with a loose sheet insert for my journal made of kraft card stock.
I inked up my new Skinner stamps and used them as my background.
To finish off the background, I added some distress oxides in black soot and
walnut stain. Splashed some water on it, and let it dry.  

I colored the sailor using Copic markers, and then I fussy cut him out.
I decided to cut off his hat to see how he looked, and inspiration struck!

I started going through my stash of cogs and schtuff to see what I could
arrange spilling out of his head. I decided to keep it relatively simple with 
only a few odds and ends. I used a couple colors and layers of embossing powder
to cover the previously hot pink arrow. I think it looks like turquoise now. 

I added the word, 'journey' and used NuVo drops in black to color it,
and turquoise drops to dot the 'j'.

I used a chipboard piece for more interest, and some distress crayons
for some depth and contrast to finish it all off. 

I am thrilled with how this guy turned out!
This would be a great image to use for any masculine themed card.
