Art Journal CJ Entry 1 from Sian to Chris

Hello Secret Swappers,

Here's my entry for Chris's "She" theme. I do believe she mentioned liking christy Tomlinsons She Art and as I love it too and have a number of those stamps I decided to style a page on it. Styling a page on it became scraplifting *cough* copying *cough* one of Christy's pages... here's the pics:

Here is the original artwork from Christy Tomlinson:

And here's some piccies of my "lifted" version:

This is the background before I added the "She Leaped" figure. I stamped a She Art background all over the paper then drew the black lines with a medium pitt pen, added some "stitching" and patterns/lines then used pro-markers to colour it all in. I also added some She Art rub-ons you can see the green circles, yellow heart, purpls circles, white stitching... finally I added some She Art die cuts... butterflies, bird and flowers.

I'm not sure how appealing this is to people who aren't She Art friendly/aware... but I absolutely love it and will be making more versions for myself - hopefully Chris will like it too :)
