Bring on the Pink

I am not a pink fan but this month's challenge at Lindy's Stamp Gang  is this mood board but here it goes-

I used
Moon Shadow Bucket of Blood Red
Starburst Dark Chocolate Truffle
Magical Autumn Maple Crimson
Starburst Poinsettia Red Gold
Magical Tibetan Poppy Teal
Magical Shabby Turbine Teal
Magical Rusty Lantern Lime

I started with an old book with a light coat of gesso, cut various sizes of strips of paper glue onto page. Next outline around paper strips with charcoal.

Then i drew on a eye with pink eye shadow, I am missing the eyebrows in the picture you will see later.  Using a palette knife coat page with clear crackle, I didn't put on eye so the color smeared, I figured that one out the hard way.

Did some random stamping then add the color, all that wonderful crackle become visible once the color is added.  I painted the color on with a paint brush used Autumn Maple Crimson, Poinsettia Red Gold, and Bucket of Blood Red.  I colored more heavy along paper strips.  Next splatter on gold and white acrylic paint, and dark chocolate truffle starburst spray.

Mix modeling paste with Tibetan Poppy Teal, Rusty Lantern Lime, and Shabby Turbine Teal apply through a harlequin stencil.  Outline harlequin with charcoal pencil, smear with fingers.  Dry brush white acrylic paint on top of harlequin pattern.

Finishing touches- rub ons, scallop banners, fragments with images underneath, journalling.

Favorite spot!!!! Wrapped wire in a circle and tied ends around brads, love how it highlights the eyeball.  I have a thing for eyes lately not in a creepy way lol.  In the close ups you can really see the crackle in action, and all the little details to create the background.
