Welcome to my world in blog land. AJ's Design Artz will be dedicated to my artistic endeavors in card design, coloring, art journaling, mixed media design, and the occasional alternative side of me. Thanks for joining me in my journey.
My project was completed with a little sadness. It’s my last one for Priscilla Styles Store. I have had to scale back my design team work due to personal/health/time issues. Those issues are all for the good, believe me. I am just sad about not being able to stay on Priscilla’s DT for another term. She has some of the most interesting and creative images to work with. And believe me, I have thoroughly enjoyed creating with them.
This little creation started with Priscilla’s Dragonfly image. It is one of my favorites. I have tried to make the entire piece look vintage.
First I colored the dragonfly with Copics in B91, 95, 97, 99 and W0, 3, 9. I covered the wings with Lime Ice and Holly Stickles. The cardstock is a natural color from my stash. The DP is from Cosmo Cricket and BasicGrey. I have distressed the edges and then use Distress Ink in Vintage Photo around all edges.
My embellishments are ribbon from SU and the pearls are from BasicGrey and Prima.
The wonderful sketch is from Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge blog, and it’s the 96th challenge! This is just the beginning of this challenge, so you have plenty of time to create something of your own. And you will also want to join Priscilla’s group on CDAC, a very fun group of people to keep you motivated.
