We are beautiful

As a kind off sequel on the previous page I made this page 

Besides remembering that we all are unique and special, we also need to be reminded that we are beautiful. This is the title of a song currently in the hit parade by Panzer Flower which my son likes a lot and sings to it so cute, just like the kids in the song. Don’t know it check it out here.
So my inspiration for this page was music, flowers (as this is the name of the artist) and a funny querky big bird (featured in the video clip). 
I started by gluing some torn pages out of a music book and some clear embossing of a musical stamp. 

Next I added texture paste through a flower stencil

and sprayed the whole page with 3 Dylusions spray inks : after midnight, crushed grape and funky fuchsia.

I tilted my page to create some drips. 

The clear embossed parts act like a resist. 
Next I added black and white acrylic paint through another flower stencil and cut a bunch of flowers out of a piece of scrap paper and a die which I placed around the page and outlined them with a white posca pen. I enlarged the image of a puffin stamp with the pc and colored him with my Inktense pencils (I am wondering what I have done without them until now) and added some gloss accents on the heart. 

In his text balloon I wrote the title of the song ‘We are beautiful’ and the number 19 refers to the current place in the parade. As a final touch I added some gold accents on the texture flowers.


  1. Lovely spread, and love the sentiment.

  2. We are all unique and that what makes us beautiful ;-)

  3. The texturing looks yummy and the page is so colourful! I've nominated you on Facebook to take part in the Art Chain that's going around Vicky! But I couldn't tag you because you're not on my friend list. The challenge is to post any piece of art on your profile for five days, tagging a new person each day asking them to do the same. Of course, there's no obligation to take part, it's just a fun thing to do. You can see my nomination on this page:

    1. Thx Susan for the tag, but i think I'll pass, I can post my work but I do not know much art friends to carry on the chain.
