More cacti today. I guess I should go watch a good western movie or maybe it is time for a little journey out west because I have been having so much fun playing with my Western stamps.
Today I am linking this page to Art Journal Journey. Thanks to Valerie and Susi who are hosting this month's theme of Masculine and Feminine.
So I started with a Gelli print and added the brown area at the bottom and cleaned off a cloud stencil to get the light clouds at the top. I also hand painted the cactus, and then used a Stabilo pencil and a brown Copic marker to finish it off.
I stamped the man on the horse several times (Acey Deucy), stamped and fussy cut the cowgirl (Artistic Outpost) and also stamped, colored, painted and cut out the big sun (Postmodern Design). I wanted the cowgirl to stand out-as this page is from her perspective- so I left her uncolored. I used a horse die cut that was laying as scrap on my work table. Interesting how much I use this horse die. I don't call myself a horse person, in fact I've only ever been on a horse once in my life. Though I will admit riding that one day was so much fun that I've thought about taking riding lessons! I think that a running horse is such a symbol of freedom (and the old west), and maybe that's my attraction to it.
The quote I wrote around the bottom and right side says "She was never afraid to be a woman in a man's world."The photo cut off the right edge of the page so you can't read the whole thing.
So that is all for me today. I am off to work, but counting the days until Friday when we set the kids free for the summer at 11:22 AM! ( And I am down to 1 week left until I am set free for the summer too! Yahoo!)
Have a great day and thanks for visiting my blog.
