Katys Corner group Art Deco pages

Not shown these before but they are my very first art deco pages having taken the plunge in Katys Corner group. These pages were for Alison - Cockney Blonde who's theme was Imaginary Friend, your childhood, who you aspired to be etc. Having spoke to her to clarify a bit more I decided to do one page as a representation of childhood and one page as representative of now.

First one I used a Mo Manning image - end of summer coloured with promarkers. I kept it very very basic to represent the carefreeness of childhood, when life was simples. I cant remember the makers of the text stamp but they have lots of phrase stamps and grumpy ladies!

The 2nd page is representative of life now showing the stresses of life. The image is Fire Dreams by stamp oasis and is available at The Stampman (though you may need to ask as its on the shelf) I have several of this range of stamp (triangle portrait, starry eyed, moon child, dryad & celestrial dreams prob more coz they're niiiiiiiiice!)

I've coloured this with promarkers although its not showing too well then I've used UTEE on the face and cracked it (to represent me cracking up ha!) The background is distress ink swiped outwards and I've put blotches of gold acrylic on and over stamped.

The stars below her face are coloured in chakra colours (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet) as are the beads on her head starting with the large red star and working up.

This is a keyring I made ages ago with that stamp which was stamped on a domino stampbord coloured with alcohol inks.

Just thought I'd show some stuff coz I been away a few days! Actually I've been a busy busy bee and made 33 ATCs last night although they're all kinda 3/4 done and just need bits and bobs on them but I had fun!

Just also to let you know I decided to step down from the I ♥ Promarkers team as I'd taken on a bit too much to be able to give the commitment they need. I'll happily carry on playing in the challenges as time allows but it wasn't for me so good luck girls!

Great projects! I don't know where to begin. I love the card with the Mo Manning image. You did a fantastic job coloring her. This is one of my favorite images. I also love the other card. Wowza on the key chain.
