Book of Days: Transformation...

Hi everyone!  Over at Book of Days, we are exploring the topic of "Who Am I Right Now?"  As I pondered this, the thing that kept coming back to me is that I am in transformation.

Here's what I came up with...
The woman is a stencil that my talented friend Jessica Sporn designed for StencilGirl Products.  I really wanted her to stand out against the colored background, so I used modeling paste through the stencil. I just LOVE the way she is standing.  She felt perfect for what I wanted to express here.  Other materials include: acrylic paint, stamps, distress stains, gesso and gelatos.  Oh, and some spray ink.  Basically every medium I had in orange and/or pink got thrown on there.  Ha.  The doodling was done with a Sakura Glaze pen in black, and sharpie poster paint pens.  The title was done with india ink and a brush.

I hope your week is going great!  I will be back tomorrow with a Life Book page to share.

Thanks for visiting and I will see you then!
