Today is new image release day over at Oddball Art. I was lucky enough to be able create some inspiration for you using image 247 - she'll be up of Etsy soon - patience......
Before I go on here's my discount code that will get you 10% off at checkout on Etsy - DTANDREA10
Now this one went completely differently to what I was going to do originally - I'll share my process - then my happy accident :)
She's kinda beachy looking so I was going to do her in a summer theme in bright colours, you know the sun sea sand kinda thing. I've just coloured another image in sepia tones and thought ok we'll experiment and try her out in that. By the way used ProMarkers to colour her. She's also cut out with a Spellbinders die and distressed with antique linen from Tim Holtz.
Now you'll have seen the "From my Rotting body Flower shall grow" sentiment that comes with the image. I thought it would be a real shame not to use this. then the old cogs started whirring - What if I did her as the main character - a movie star in a HORROR movie! And an old style vintage movie at that!!!
So that's what I did and this was the result :D
The design paper is some spooky job from Lost and Found. I also cut out a black oval with the same die so it looks a bit like she's in a spotlight. The image and sentiments have been distressed and edged with biro. I've also used some rhine stones and black self adhesive gems. And finally a bit of movie strip from Tim Holtz.
So what is my happy accident - Lizzy actually pointed it out but we both agreed it works even better that what I originally put. She's staring as in horror instead of starring as in starring in a film - ROLF!!
Ok that's it from me hope I've managed to brighten your day in a spooky kinda way
