Street Team Challenge #38



What a fun challenge.....
I had some painted tissue paper left from the collage I did after watching Carrie Burns Brown video.  I glued to my journal.  I don't usually work with this color combination, so it was nice to do something different.




I added some painted corrugated light bulb packaging on either side, a couple rubber stamps and affixed some "hardware" on the right side.
Forgot to take a picture with the red stamps and the dry brush paint, but you get the idea..... I then added my drawing of the two women with Photoshop Elements.  It could have been done just as easily using a transfer or transparency.  I'm just showing off my new skill!!  
You might want to look at lots of great "street team" art on Michelle Ward's blog 
You can find all the entries in the left side bar.
If you like what you see, be sure to join us.  No pressure.  The challenges are monthly and you can choose to play or pass .

Hi Marilyn,
I love that you went new colors.
Did you scan the page and then do the photoshop stuff?
Love it.

very nice. I really like the corrugated cardboard elements with the brown tissue! I am wondering how you got the drawing onto the page if not with a transfer/transparency?

How wonderfully inventive and creative to produce such a gorgeous journal. I love these colors- earthy and soft all at the same time. Your patterns and textural effects are just great. Will definitely hold on to tissue paper that's not in good enough condition to reuse for gifting- but would be great for arting!!
