Inside My World

I think enough time has passed that I can share this .. mixed media (Such an OPEN word now) gem I worked up as a submission to RubberStampMadness.

I submitted it as a cover piece, and though I was not chosen as the cover it IS and will ALWAYS be one of my favorite pieces. There's a great writeup on it and myself in the Spring 2014 issue of RSM if you get a chance to pick up a copy :)

Behold: In MY World I dance across the flower tops under moonshine and among winged creatures.

The base is a sheet of 7 Dots Studio that I honestly did not prepare in any way. I just got to stamping and layering! I stamped tons of Viva Las VegaStamps! rubber stamps down including the Chevron Banner, Mushroom, Tall Mushroom, Sunflowers, Fancy Lace Border, Blowing Dandelion with Extra Seed, Moon Circle and Dancing Lady. All have been stamped in Archival Ink by Ranger.

I conveyed some moonshine by drawing lines of rays using the UmWowStudio Light Bulb Mask. The giant UmWowStudio Cicada has been stamped with the Dictionary Page from Viva Las VegaStamps!.

Because I had to cut down the 12x12 sheet of 7 Dots Studio paper, I had some scraps to do a bit of layering with. I gave one of them a pretty edge with a punch and inked it up. Then I stamped onto it with the Fancy Border. The Dandelion comes in off the left side with the UmWowStudio Spooky Branch.

My Dancing Lady has been colored with Sakura of America oil pastels. 

And last but not least... my banner of stars. I sewed lines of thread down the page and embellished with the Star Confetti Mask and Star Confetti chipboard from UmWowStudio. Add in a few chunky eBeads and it's the perfect bit of glitz!

And there it is! Seriously.. sigh. I forgot how much I loved this piece :) what a treat to get to share it with you!
