Art Journal: She left a Sparkle (+ new process video!)

She left a sparkle

Today I wanted to share a page from my Junk Mail Art Journal. I have also filmed the process and would love to share that with you here as well. I wanted to use the stamps I had bought a while back but not used at all which were the dress form stamps you see in the back. Also a few new to me ARTploration stencils from STAMPlorations were used. The focal point is the woman stamped on the gelli printed paper. Well, you can see how it all came together here:

There were some bits I was struggling with, I wanted to have the dress form popping out and that took a few tries but got there in the end. I also muted the colors down a bit because I didn't want to take away from my focal point as she was very bright and colorful too. With these art journal pages I create I learn something new every time. Glad I can share this journey with you :)

I would like to enter this page in the following challenges;
Used the ARTploration stencil as listed above

So these dress forms are showing a shape of the "ideal" female figure. Most women feel compelled to "get into shape" and working towards having these hourglass figures. Believe me you don't need to, you have your sparkle no matter what shape you are built in.
