Frida in the shadows


Another  Frida  page for the August theme over at Art Journal Journey
The inspiration over there is awesome, thank you  Susi and Valerie  who chose this theme and  for taking me down a path I may never have found.
I  am  so taken with this subject, that I  have managed to find a rubber stamp with her image by Lost Coast Designs.   I used stencils as a background. Stamped Frida a few times without re- inking the stamp every time. I liked the shades on the one I used as a mask, so included it as well. 
To finish off I used a sunburst mask and a very thin layer of grunge paste for texture, colouring when dry with metallic wax.
Thank you for stopping by, the comments you leave are always appreciated.
