My Deep Love by Norma Burnell

   I have some AWESOME news that I meant to share with you last week but hadn't gotten there yet...between work and yard work (on a rare nice sunny day ....that I didn't have to work ) and a major coloring frenzy.....well here it is - I am now a member of the Sweet Pea Stamps DT!!!! YIPPPEEE!!!!
   My project today is an altered sketch journal.
The image I used is called 'My Deep Love' by Norma Burnell and I colored her with prismacolor pencils. I added a bit of stickles glitter to the pearls in her hair and the seashell and cut her out with a Spellbinders die.
  I layered her to some pretty oceany handmade paper and then to the cover of the journal.
  I then went a bit wild with beads - using blue and turquoise seed beads and outlined the main image and some of the swirls in the paper.
  Lastly I used a  salmon pink viva décor pen that matched the pearls and seashell in her hair perfectly and added a whole bunch of pearls along the swirls in the paper and some in the corners.
  All for tonight - Take Care

This is absolutely fabulous, I don't think you went a bit wild with the beads. You've inspired me to use my beads more now, thank you.
