Creative Every Day 2010

My creative challenge for January 2010, hosted by the talented Leah, was the word body.



I used an old book cover as my canvas. I inked the board with Distress Ink in Aged Mahogany and Tattered Rose and sponge painted with gold and silver metallic paints. I cut the women walking figure from a transparency to make a stencil and secured it to the book canvas. With metallic gold, I sponge painted inside the stencil. After the paint was thoroughly dry, I inked several stamps with Staz-On black ink and stamped randomly with the stencil still in place. I then removed the stencil and stamped the butterfly in her hand with Staz-On red ink. I tied the black ribbon around the canvas securing with a few dabs of glue and glued a picture hanger to the back.

The project was inspired by the book, Creative Paper Dollmaking by Rhonda Rainey.
