Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #97 ~ Sketch!!!

ThiFortnight's challenge is a simple little sketch,
I used it as the cover to my mini little journal, I use the term 'journal' very loosely as really it's twelve pieces of watercolour paper washi taped together. I wanted to have a little space that I could try out some of my many ideas without getting my larger art journal out. 
I replicated my experiment that I created on my Hochanda show, for the main cover(when you have an idea you might as well run with it lol...) and the floral edge I inked, masked, stamped and fussy cut out. 
And it's worked as I managed to keep going and have two of the pages with some arty stuff on already, yay! The left is a very illustrative graphic look using pen, and copic markers.
The right I went straight in with watercolours, painty flowy with just an impression of the hair.
I used a resist technique with some microglaze, on her top which worked out beautifully, and below you might just see a hint of sparkle that's in the metallic watercolour.

Maybe you'll get a chance to join in the fun!

So glad you did roll with it Kim as it's the perfect size to go with your fabulous new stamps & templates. No matter how many pages it's a journal in my eyes. Loved watching how you layered the faces, they almost look hand drawn. Clever way of using the roses to replicate the sketch too.
Your Paperbabe ladies are truly beautiful in your unique style. Thank you for sharing. Big Hugs Tracey xx
