MORE BACKGROUNDS

Still playing with backgrounds. Yes, even with all the paper I own, and I will confess, I have a serious paper addiction, I still like the background challenges. This was a hair style that I work on for around 30 minutes, for our little girl. It did turn out well, considering I am not in anyway a beautician.

I worked with zig zag stitching, stencils and glimmer mist of several colors, stamps and then crystal lacquer covered with liquid acrylic paint. And though you can't see it, I used different liquid acrylics to splatter on the lo. The chip boards were laid down after I played with some shadowing techniques. And some beautiful buttons from Courtney, who swapped them to me. Thanks Court. Love the colors.

Trying to do more challenges than swaps right now. Challenges push me towards new discoveries. {And leave my studio a mess}

Peace.
