Oddball Art Stamps Blog Challenge - Reminder Post

Today I'd like to share with you an Art Journal Page I've created for the latest challenge over at the Oddball Art Stamps Challenge Blog.

We've changed the rules so now you don't have to play along with the challenge theme, but if you do and win you get an extra prize.

Our theme this month is 'A Sky Full of Stars', and you can interpret this however you wish, but we'd love you to share with us you an explanation of your interpretation, if it's not obvious.

Here is my project;

For my project I've used Creepy Claire #64. Before printing the image out I lightened it so I could use the 'No Lines Technique' to colour it.  I coloured her with Alcohol Markers before adding her to my page, and then added some details with coloured pencils and gold and white gel pen.

To create my page background, I added layers of Acrylic Paint, until I was happy with the colour and texture of the page.  I added my image to the page, then using a Star stencil applied 'Flitter Glu' from Indigo Blu with a sponge before using a Red Oxide Foil sheet to foil my stars.  I then add some hand drawn Stars, squiggles and dots with Red and Gold Metallic Gel Pen.

I outlined my image with Red Pastel Pencil before adding splatters of white Gesso to the whole page.

Once dry I decided to add a sentiment, so used a Tim Holtz Small Talk Sticker which seemed appropriate. I outlined this with the same Red Pastel Pencil to tie it in with the rest of the page.

Want to see more projects inspired by our 'A Sky Full of Stars' theme, then hop over to the Oddball Art Stamps Blog and check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of our design team.  You'll also find instructions on how to join in our challenge and win some awesome Oddball Art Stamps images.
