Hola mis peeps! So after much tribulation, I decided to make another project but this time really follow the rules! =D I had painted 3 8x10 CANVAS that had a sunset with Dia de los Muertos pumpkins thinking I would be able to enter them but as it turns out I couldn't. *the violin playing in the background* So I just thought to myself that I would make a page. But then Bona announced a mixed media tag swap and I already had ideas running through my head! So why not? I'm hitting 2 birds with one stone! The sponsor for this month's contest is Faber Castell Design Memory Craft! I also followed ALL the contest rules. ALL 1-9! Woot woot!!!! O.K enough babbling. Off to my tag!
The inspiration came from one of my besties pins on Pinterest. From there I drew myself an image and then paper pieced her (Yes, I hand drew her myself.) For the background I used acrylic paints, stamps with archival ink, hand-made glimmer mist, made the clouds with my hand-made stencil and finally a FABER-CASTELL PITT ARTIST PEN (f.y.i I ADORE these pens! I have been using them on my paintings and my mixed media projects. They don't smear or smudge!!!!!)
