Have your own style.(she was never a follower of fashion!)
Over at UK Stampers the journal theme for this week is fashion. I have never really been a follower of fashion ..rather spend money on art stuff! I dont like the fashion magazines and tv programmes which criticize what people are wearing as I think everyone should have their own style. So using the words fearless, controversy, signature style I had fun playing around with various magazine images and cut out painted stars on this page. The background is painted and I have added pastels and charcoal over the paint to give it more texture. I ran out of gesso so just used thinned down white paint to bring it all together.
While I was waiting in the van on the school run I did this quick sketch in 5 mins...its not bad and the moral is always keep a sketchbook and pencil with you for when you have a bit of time to spare.
