Mine! Mine! Mine!


The newest Pink Ninjas prompt is "Selfish". 

As you may know, I've been having a great time over the last month or so taking a couple paint technique classes (Big Picture Scrapbooking @ Home with Claudine Hellmuth & a class at my LSS with Bethany Kartchner).  I'm nearing the end of my trusty sketch book and thought how fun to make another using paint and this prompt since the sketch book is just creative ideas for me. 

I LOVE the way this came out.  It's so touchable, too.  Lots of texture within the paint.


Can you see the relief?  I just want to run my fingers over it.



I decided to call this my "Junque Journal".  I was inspired by the one Bethany Kartchner made.



Even the title is all touchy-feely with Tim Holtz distressed Stickles.



I had to include a paint transfer.  I am so in love with this technique.  It's so cool to take any image and make it part of the paint. 



And here it is, in its entirety.  Can you see the two masks I used, too, sprayed with mist?  There's a giant old-fashioned looking clock near the title and stars at the top.

This journal is made out of one of those black and white composition books.  Can't beat that with all the back-to-school sales right now!  I think it was 50 cents.  I bought a bunch.

I plan to fill this baby with sketches, prompts, colors, clippings, and varied ephemera I want to incorporate into my projects.

Check out what the rest of the Pink Ninjas made for the "Selfish" prompt.  We all had a great time playing. 

Why don't you show us how you're selfish?
