Southern Girls Anything Goes

This week at Southern Girls Challenge  our theme is Anything goes.  Our sponsor is Ppinkydolls for this challenge, the DT ladies have made gorgeous samples with Ppinky doll images so be sure to go and check them all out on the challenge page.

I have used Circus Bebe on my Art Journal page.


I painted the background with acrylic paint, on the curtains I mixed the paint with texture medium to create a rippled material look.  I also added liquid pearls to add some definition of the different areas.  I printed the image out on slightly thicker printer paper and coloured with copics. I printed the quote out on my printer and grunged up the paper with sprays and distress ink before gluing down and  outlining the pieces and the outside of the page with a sharpie.

Thanks loads for joining me today be sure to check out the challenge.
