Damsel Art Journal

Crafty Calender-anything goes
The Craft Barn-letter D (damsel)

This was the first page I made using a picture of a woman from a magazine. I got the idea from tubeyoumaster on youtube. I dont care for this page, I do like how the girl turned out, but I got too busy with the rest of the page. 

I did this one today and used the dictionary term DAMSEL. Then I wrote out the lines, Every damsel in distress deserves a hero  But I'm no damsel...and there is no distress.  Lol cracked me up. 

In case you are wondering how I did the girl, I used a picture from a magazine, I cut around it and pasted it onto my art journal. Then I painted her. I also outlined our with colored sharpies.

I'm always a bit unsure about using magazine pictures in my journal - it is not a look I'm particularly comfortable with - but you have made it work really well here - maybe I'll have to give it a go. MMx

Lovely colours on your pages and the thing about this challenge is it lets us experiment with different techiques- sometimes we like the end result, somes times we don't but we always learn new things along the way. so don't be too hard on yourself. Also I did a class using magazine collage and the rule was if you don't like parts of it paint over it - reinvent it. The results can be amazing. See you for the next letter.
