This week the challenge over at the Craft Barn is to make something flowery.All the details can be found here.
This is what I came up with

I started by selecting 3 sheets of patterned paper to make the flower for which I found a template here.

These dictated me the background color for my spread in my newspaper journal, I used a fuchia inktense pencil. Did some stamping on top with a heart script (which I also used on the inside cover of the journal) in black stazon and some diamonds in a green shade.

Next I stenciled the face, gave her red lips and green eyes and added this flower in her hair.

The flower didn't turn out like the example, but that's okay, I distressed the edges with walnut DI and added a gem in the center.
The border got another color of inktense, a mauve one this time and I stenciled some flourishes in white acrylic paint.
Have a nice, creative weekend all.


  1. Love the floral repetition in this - she's both soft and powerful!

  2. Love your very strong face image, and the colour combination too.

  3. Yes she looks fierce... if looks could kill... Your flower is good, it's nice to use patterned paper and an excellent way to use scraps if like me you have a mountain!

  4. Lovely page and your flower is very pretty! xx

  5. What a lovely page, beautiful colours.
    Thank you for joining in the challenge.
