Our challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers this time is Water. We want to see your creations that involve water. They don’t have to be cards, any crafty project will qualify, just as long as there is some water on the project somewhere.
Oh how I wish I could draw. I fell in love with the gorgeous Art Doll I used in my journal page as soon as I saw her. She is from a kit called Validation and is by Courtney Designs. I did trim off her wings as they got in the way of her falling tears. I also printed her twice, the first time was actually an accident cos I chopped one side of her head off, so I had a spare hair piece I could cut out to give her matching bows in her hair, instead of the single one on the original image. I also drew on her tears.
The page was created with Distress Stains which I dotted on my craft sheet and squirted with a water mist. Then I smooshed the paper through it. The bottom piece I did separately in Neocolor II crayons which I laid down and then blended with a paintbrush and water, and then tore off to add to the bottom of the page. You can’t really see in the photo, but when it was finished, I sprayed the river with a fine mist of water that I had added a tiny drop of pearlescent medium too so in fact the water sparkles a little like the sun shining on it.
The bulk of the stencils are from Crafters Workshop, apart from the text which was a Viva Decor one from Pinflair, the little shoals of fish are Sheena Douglass.
I created the title sentiment on my pc, and then stuck it on later. The white highlighter pen is a Molotow paint pen.
