Frida on Friday


Another version of Frida Kahlo, this artist gets more and more interesting as I  gather more information.
Thank you Art Journal Journey for introducing her to me. There are many amazing pieces  to see here.
This page is another that started out on the computer, blending of images etc, then stuck down in my journal.
The border of leaves was stamped and the trusty stencil used to give a little texture. I am mindful of using stencils with grunge paste, spreading it as thinly as possible, so the book will shut. Once dry out with some  White Fire-Treasure Gold to give it a bit of a shine, applied with the fingers, much more control this way.

Thank you for stopping by, the comments you leave are always appreciated.
