Dreamer!

Today I have been creating with Trish Latimer's WhimsyGirl Three, one of Trish's newly released stamps, which you can find HERE.
I opted to use Trish's stamp in conjunction with PaperArtsy Infusions to give her a mixed media feel.
I applied Grunge Paste through one of Tim Holtz number stencils and then added the Infusions to colour; layering the colour bit by bit until I was happy with the depth.
I applied Grunge Paste through Tim Holtz Stars Layering Stencil onto her dress and again coloured with Infusions. I added two layers to her dress for added dimension. She is also holding a small wooden star to echo the stars on her dress.
I added white highlights with a white pen and added splatters of white paint to add contrast to the design.
I also added a circle of white paint using an old lid along with a touch of shading around the edge of the Whimsy Girl using Pumice Stone Distress Marker. The circle of paint acts as a spotlight to the image. I added a touch of colour to her face and hair with pencil crayons.

Thanks Trish for the opportunity to use one of your fabulous stamps.

Oh - I so love her Tracy. What a WONDERFUL tribute to the new stamps by Trish. Her new girl is just darling and your background is super FABULOUS. Soooo..... I have decided that your girl is dreaming about counting lots of money in her bank account!! Why??? You have numbers and she is dancing on a very "cash" green background!!!! And right now - with her arms spread wide - she is determining the length of time it will take her to achieve her dream and be a STAR!!!! Heheheheheh - there you have my take on your SUPER FUN creativity!!! Xj.
