Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #128 ~ Dimension

 Hello creative friends

however you depict the theme come share your dimensional 
creations with the team HERE for a chance to win a prize. 

*You DO NOT have to use Paperbabe stamps in your design but if 
you do it doubles the prize pot for one randomly selected winner*

Here's what I got up to and how it came to be.. 

Using scraps of left over Paperbabe stencilled paper saved from 
projects, paste test sheets or various mixed media, I layered 
torn strips to a journal page to create a simple background. 

A stamped and painted Dinky Female face and torso is given a layered 
hair style using more of those stencilled scraps cutting out a mix of 
styles using the Bunches Template set creating dimension to her hair. 

Toning down the existing colour of her layered hair using gesso 
she blends into the background resting peacefully on Dinky hands
Recycled lace, pearl embellishments and a fibreboard substrate 
add extra texture and dimension completing my journal creation.

Look forward to seeing your 

Take care & stay safe everyone..
Creative wishes 
Tracey xx

Tracey this is amazing! I love the texture and the way she is resting on her hand with such a pensive look on her face. The way that you can get emotion out of stamps is wonderful. Take care and have a very happy weekend, Sue xx
