She Art AJ for Chris by Crino
This is my AJCJ for Chris. I've not done any 'she art' before and it's not exactly the same as Christy Tomlinson's stuff, but hey, I actually really enjoyed doing it and may well find myself doing some more. The background is a mixture of Dylusions spray ink and inktense pencils (both of which are pretty new to me but I'm liking a lot) which I then stamped with an umbeliifer stamp that lurks in the dark recesses of the broom cupboard. I 'dotted' the seed heads with a white sakura pen and I really like that effect. I distress stamped the stitching around the top corner and found a nice grid stamp that I used for the hell of. My lady is my own drawing, coloured with ProMarkers and the dress is made of two bits of paper - a book page which I stamped with the ladybird and and piece of raspberry plainish paper for the bodice. Her name is Michelle and she's quite a one. Oh, the words say 'she flies with her own wings' which is a saying I found on a site (which I will reference when I can find it....) but I really liked it - sums up how I feel at the moment which is a good thing I guess :)
I was initially a bit not freaked, but concerned that I hadn't explored this area of art before, but I'm pretty pleased with the end result. What do you think?
