My I word is Insanity, I guess there is a thin line between insanity and the art I make, O, well there are worse things in life, altough sometimes caught between Art and Insanity, most of the times I am ok LOL
the back ground is a gelli plate print using Deco Arts Americana acrylics, colours used: Red Alert, Mustard Seed, Jack O lantern Orange, and a bit sour apple
The digital image is called "Art will set us Free" it is drawn by Rick St.dennis. The globe is a Tim Holz die used as a stencil and there is some bubble wrap

Most of the rubber stamps used are Rick St.dennis images the birds and the skullman are from de Stempelwinkel.

After all Halloween stuff I really needed to do something different, this might be shocking to some of you, but I do love colouring Rick's fashion ladies and even the cute mouse of yesterdays post was a joy to colour :-)  I guess I have multiple personalities , but they like eachother so I am OK  LOL

Image time now.

I used Waltz a Rick St.Dennis image you can find her here in Rick's Zibbet shop
the background is a Gelli print, I used Tim Holtz dies as a mask and a star stencil to add the little stars. Paints used is Deco Arts Americana Acrylics (colours: Dragon Fruit, Baby Pink, Ocean breeze) for the stars I used Glamour Dust glitter paint (purple princess and neon blue) and Metallic Lustre silver spark


I added some glitter glue to the butterflies and the Jewels

I used this imaga on an Art Journal page so printed it rather big, but this being a digital image, you can ofcourse print smaller for cards or even reverse it.
There are a lot more of these lovely ladies in Rick's zibbet shop, so check it out
