Come look at the goodies I got from the thrift store this week! Plus I show you the finished project from last Mixed MEdieology Monday and tell you more about the products I used to make my sweater pumpkin.
Stay tuned for the bloopers at the end 😉
I have been wanting to use my Route 66 stamp for the LONGEST time and since this Barbie justlooked like she was ready for a summer road trip, I thought it was a great combination.
I have this great book of maps from Turkey so I cut out a page and attached it to the front of an upcycled card with gel medium. Next I stamped my Swimsuit lady onto a piece of watercolor paper using Distress Ink in Black Soot and cut her out with an Xactto. I painted my lady with Neocolor II water color crayons and Prismacolor Colored Pencils. I colored all of her accessories using glitter gel pens, then finished off her lips and eyes with Prismacolor markers.
I stamped my Route 66 stamp onto watercolor paper using Fired Brick Distress Ink, cut it out, then colored in the sign with blue and silver glitter gel pen. I printed my quote then aged the paper with Distress Ink in Tea Dye. I attached my text and images to the map using gel medium. Even though I now have a great card to use whenever I need it, I like it so much I may just glue it closed and attach a ribbon to the back and hang it up as a reminder to myself 😀
