Carry Me Away

Continuing with my journals for my daughters this week I have used the image Carry Me Away by Molly Harrison which is available as a digi from Sweet Pea Stamps.  This journal page is for my eldest daughter who just loves horses :) :)
To begin with I coloured the image with Promarkers and Polychromos.  Gold Spectrum Noir tint was used for the top section of the wing and gold glass granules were added for a bit of texture.
With the image coloured I set to preparing the journal page with white Gesso.  While that was drying I fussy cut the image, not an easy task with all those swirls hahaha.  Out with the Spectrum Noir tints again and I used three shades of purple for the base background and then added blotches of water at the top and allowed them to run down the page - cool effect :) Black tint next and I freehand created what is meant to be a tree.  To finish the tree off I used black embossing powder in areas.  A bit more embossing powder, this time a mixture of gold and clear and a texture stamp to create the gold circle areas.
Time now to add the fussy cut image and I then finished off with some gold stickles around the mane swirls.
The text was die cut using lime green vinyl and then finally added to the journal page, that was not easy as I had used the reverse side of my cutting mat and the vinyl stuck like you know what, took me ages to remove transfer it to transfer tape but a big sigh of relief when it was done.
