Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #127 ~ Classic Blue Picture inspiration

Hello everyone 

It's time for a new Paperbabe Stamps Challenge

This fortnight we give you a Picture for inspiration.
Use the Picture below as your prompt and let that 
Pantone Classic Blue of 2020 inspire you.

Here's my Design Team creation and how it came to be. 

Working with an unfinished journal page displaying a stamped 
Dinky Female Face BLUE is one colour I could never be without 
in my colour palette, I find it extremely calming.

Layers of blue lace add direction and simulate the flow of her hair. 

Adding fibre paste through the Iso Fun Stencil. As Sapphire is 
Septembers birthstone I picked out the ring in the prompt adding blue 
glass beads and a dusting of Gold mica liberally amongst the blue.

A difficult shape to photograph I found it interesting that the Blue appears 
much darker and her skin paler through the lens than they actually are...

so here's a close up of her beauty unleashed from the shadows 
along side those brave words, completing my mixed media page.

There's a prize of up to £20 to spend in the Paperbabe Stamps Shop, 
I do hope you can pop along HERE and join in with this months 

Take care & Stay safe 

Creative wishes
