S&S Kickstart Your Art Day1 and LOC #62

Okay so officially it's almost Day 2 of the new Kickstart Your Art week long challenge, but you have 24 hours to get your art journal page in and I am down to the nitty gritty this morning.

Day 1 KYA challenge is Layers.  I have got plenty on this page and was very happy with the way it has turned out.

Left of Center also has their Challenge #62 - Layer it Up which this page will be entered into.

Have both digital and rubber stamps on this page along with layers of papers and paints.  

Full On Toxic Details

Ladies are from the Smeared Ink Digital set called Toxic Ballerinas.  Image was printed out onto Very Vanilla card stock.  Colored in with markers.  Crystal Effects over eyes.  They were fussy cut and then adhered to another piece of Very Vanilla card stock that I had already used acrylic paints on.

Layer below ballerinas was placed onto gelli plate, then gone over with reds and paint brush.  Wanted to bring out the veins on each of the ballerinas.
Washi tape was also placed along center before ballerinas were adhered.
Tore along all edges and adhered this layer to my journal page.

Base layer of page is what I made for my Winter is Here project...found HERE.
Used a variety of blue acrylic inks, spray inks, stencils, sponges, and various nick-nacks to make patterns.  Other colors of acrylic inks were added to enhance the pages I was working on.

Once each layer was adhered down, I used the back ground stamps Heads (Daniel Torrente) and French Filigree (retired SU!) with inks randomly on page.
