Recycled Super Hero

Here are two more journal pages I created yesterday. During the holiday I shopped in White Stuff as you do and was given my purchases in a comic book inspired carrier bag. I loved the image and the caption and decided I wanted to recycle it into a journal page. I thought she looked like a super hero and that is what started my mind cogs whirring.

Close up of the comicbook image which I stuck into my journal and then I used Distress Inks in Barn Door and Broken China applied with a baby wipe and doodled with Neocolor II wax pastels and a waterbrush to colour the background. Some on the finer doodling was done with a Pitt pen.
I wanted to write something on this page but didn't have enough space on the one page so decided to make it a double page spread! Again I used Distress Inks and a baby wipe to roughly make a Union Jack flag and the red central George Cross is made from the paper that went into making the carrier bag handles. The brown paper around the outside of the page is also the paper from the handles.
Thanks for stopping by. Please do leave a comment if you are able, I love to read them all.
