Unity stamp called Love Yourself by Suzi Blu is interesting and attractive in the way of mixed media art and it happened to be the perfect height for my block. I inked her up with Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black onto a piece of white tissue paper, then tore around it to create a softer edge that would blend better into the bg once it was mod podged down. I added another Unity stamp with circles, a couple of Chic Tags rub-ons and a metal key for more interest. I colored the heart and her lips with a red Copic marker and her eyes with a white gel pen, then a tiny dot of blue Copic marker. I colored her cheeks with a tiny bit of bubblegum Gelato. I meant to color in the little bouquet of flower she's holding, but I forgot, oops! hehe : )
Here's some of supplies I used. A lot of regular ole' things from around the house like the wood block, crayons and tissue paper ended up being super inspiring!!! I also used some other things like Tim Holtz distress ink in Walnut Stain and distress stain in Antique Linen.
I'm also entering my altered wood block into Take The Challenge with Mou- July Challenge. This month's challenge is to create something you don't usually create. It could be style, colors, theme, products, anything you don't create often.
This was my first time working on a bare wood block surface to create a mixed media art project so I think this qualifies :)
