Meeting Annabel, Lily & Rosie

So to the last of my makes from the Clarity TV shows.
I had "such fun" with these girlies and their corresponding patterns.
They took me back to my youth when I use to love nothing more than having a try at fashion art design and I would sit for hours drawing and colouring fashions scenes and images.
So I decided I just had to recreate something along those lines and it took me right back and once again I became completely absorbed in what I was doing!
I think it's also where I found my love of working in miniature.
I kept to just the stamped images and used Momento London Fog ink pad and thought about a bit of a retro style incorporating the names, adding my chosen elements, embellishments and for a bit of fun the chicks!
The colours were chosen to reflect each girls image and "personality" and in keeping with my childhood love I decided to some colour elements with pencils and add the pencil writing.
I used the Letterbox Kit interchanged with the ovals from the Numeral Set for the girls names.
The "fabric" swatches, cotton fabric swatch and paper elements were made having fun with the Gelli Plate, just practising and trying out different techniques.
I made a cover page for each of the designs and used a book ring to join them adding the threads and fibres in complementary colours.
I hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I enjoyed creating them!
They're my take on the current trend of "Art Journaling" I'm calling them my "Fashion Art Journals"  xKx
