Rubbermoon/Story Girl

My Rubbermoon project began with a simple ATC.  Then, a splash of color on my journal.  There the two shall meet.

Stamps used:  Story Girl (kp5059), Unicorn Woman (jc535), and Umbrellas (ge2843)

First, cut a piece of black cardstock to ATC size.  On white, glossy paper, use a variety of Distress Ink colors to stamp Umbrellas as background image.  Set aside.

Next, stamp Unicorn Woman to plain white paper.  Trim off top border and cut out the primary image.  Color with Copic markers.  Add splash of glitter to wings.  Glue to the ATC.  Stamp the text Story Girl.  Directly to the edge of the ATC, add a splash of acrylic paints.  Highlight this with white pen.  Set aside.

Using the same acrylic paint colors, add splash of color to cover of Moleskine journal.  Allow to dry.  Adhere ATC to the front, spray with Krylon to protect new cover.

3/4 Sun Mandala

3/4 Sun Mandala is a hat tip to the beautiful spring we've had in Southeast Alaska!  Due to the oddly-sized Moleskine, my mandala doesn't quite stretch far enough upward/downward, but the spirit is there.

Using StazOn Black, stamp Large Lady Sun Face (ge2475) in the center of the page.  Use Neocolor II Watersoluble Crayons to loop around the sun.  Apply water to blend.

When dry, use matching Distress Ink colors to stamp Dots & Circles (ml205).  Use yellow to add additional rings to sun's face.  Finally, stamp True Free Spirit (ml204) to the right of the sun. To the left, rip and adhere strips of chevron Washi tape.

Let the hippy tie dye summer begin! :)
