When we came into the year 2011, I was considered a Libra. Who knows what I am now since they recalculated all of the signs. It doesn't really matter to me. I just needed a way to begin this post, LOL!
Reflecting on the year, I feel like I have very much neglected my colored pencils. Probably because it is way quicker to color with markers. So, I decided to end the year with a relaxing coloring session with a Terry Medaris Zodiac image, called "Libra". Guess I'd better figure out my new sign...reason to buy a new stamp, LOL!
I stamped "Libra" onto Strathmore Bristol smooth paper with Stazon Jet Black ink. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and Caran d'Ache pencils. When finished, I sprayed the image with workable fixative.
I framed the image with black cardstock, and then placed it onto a sheet of orangy-rust cardstock. I stamped some small stars (also included with this stamp of Terry's) with Versamark, just to add a subtle background. I paper pierced around this panel. I then framed this panel with black cardstock. The thing about working with a Terry Medaris image, I truly believe the image speaks for itself and needs very little if any embellishing or layers. I finished the card with a circle clip and a gold cord bow.
I wanted to thank you all for visiting my blog this year, and hope you will continue to follow my creative journey into the new year. I hope everyone has a 2012 that is filled with happiness, good health and love (regardless of your sign, LOL!)
