glitter, transfer foil and metallic paint


was to make something about being a woman.  This challenge resonated with me, not all the challenges do.  This is my journal page - it says I am a woman, I am powerful.  The colors were inspired by my trip to Little India in Toronto this past weekend.  The sarees are so incredibly beautiful and they are not afraid to go over the top with glitz  and color.
I used some trim that I colored with alcohol inks.  I printed I am powerful with a paint brush and acrylic paint.  I also applied some transfer foil to those words.  The acrylic paint was dry when I applied the foil with heat.  The acrylic paint acts as the adhesive.  I used a yummy new metallic paint by Pebeo for the background.

Beautiful shimmer and shine, I think it definitely has the feel of the sari. Very nice.

Sari's really are beautiful. I don't know how comfortable they are but pretty yes. Nice pages. We have to believe in ourselves.
