JAM 1 - name

This year I will also be taking part in the JAM (Journal about me) challenge hosted by Tiaresmith (all details can be found on her blog).
We will be creating a round page each week with a given prompt and challenge.
Week 1: prompt is your name and the challenge is to use a babywipe.


Here is a step by step how I created this page



Colored my circle 
with an ochre and brown 
gel stick.




used a babywipe 
to create 
a more watercolor effect.



tried a new technique, image transfer with matte medium.
glued my laserprint image down with matte medium, left it for an hour, after an hour wetted it with water and rubbed the paper away with my fingers and tada my image of Queen Victoria has been transferred.



I stamped a border all around
and cut the letters of my name 
with my cameo 
out of a scrap piece of paper.





The flowers are actually made out of babywipes, I have a stash of them dried in my drawer (never throw anything away), cut circles out of them, hit them with a heatgun so they crumble up, glue them together and add a center. 
This also fits in perfectly with this month's lets play theme so I will also be linking there.
