Well for anyone who knows me, knows that I am not much for bling...I'm more of a Talbots or Ralph Lauren type of girl. So when Emily presented us with the challenge and wanted GOLD and BLING I put my creative self in gear and decided on ASIAN!
Yoko and Ono stepped up to the plate and I couldn't be more pleased. I think I may perch them in my new Zen inspired bathroom and admire them for a while! I bought the October Afternoon paper at Scrapfest specifically with these girls in mind and got to work. I must say when I was colorin' them up I was thinking they were shifting away from my vision but in the end it worked for me. Of course sistah Paula called me AGAIN knowing that I'd be busy colorin' but I think she is actually helping me out...maybe she is sending me telepathic colorin' vibes over the phone lines and she doesn't even realize it! LOL! Keep it up sistah...you know how I love to hear that Michigan accent of yours!
I colored the girls up with copics, and used pencils for shading. For the bling I used that quickie glue pen with lots of dots to fill in the space and sprinked on some orange colored loose glitter. I cut the layers out with nesties and added a heavy edge with a gold Krylon pen. You can't tell from the pic but I decided to try out Paula's idea of using black gel pen on their hair and it makes it nice sleek and shiny! Great idea sistah!
I hope everyone is enjoying these challenges as much as I am! Now go check out Emily's blog and see what everyone else came up with.
