Radiant Faces Class - Week four

I'm finally getting back to my Radiant Faces Class.  This week's teacher was Julie Gibbons with the topic of the Inner Goddess.  The mandala we created was to be our Inner Goddess. 

I put off this lesson because I really didn't particularly agree with some of the logic for the Inner Goddess but I decided that I would take it as the art lesson that it was to be and really enjoyed created.  She has white eyebrows because my hair is white.  The white dots in the hair also because of my white hair. 

The second part of this lesson by Effy Wild showed me something that is totally against what I would normally do......she didn't color each continuous chunk of hair with the same color.  Horror!  I'm glad I took that into my piece. 

When she was all done, I decided to add lashes and the minute the lashes started to go on, I regretted it.  She was pretty without them.  But I had already committed with the start of the lashes so I continued and added some white dots to match the hair.  It redeemed it a little for me!  The flowers around the outside edge because flowers are part of me!

I hope you enjoy!  *Note to self*......when coloring with copics away from home, have a better light source.  There were some errors that I couldn't correct.....*sigh*......

From November 10 - December 10, the Technique Junkie blog will be featuring a Christmas card each day made from Technique Junkie Christmas stamps.  In addition to the cards, Pat is offering a 15% discount on the entire Technique Junkies stamp site until December 10th!  Make your Christmas list and get shopping!

Today, my card was featured on the Technique Junkie blog.  Pictures of my card are below BUT if you would like to see the other cards for Day 1-4, go to the TJ blog HERE

Today my card uses a lovely Christmas angel (#SD0770, Angel of Annunciation, $6.95)  As I worked on this card, I originally thought to use just white but the angel just wasn't popping like I wanted.  So, I started to add the background color with Copic markers.  The border was trimmed down to eliminate confusion where the border and flourish overlap.  After the border and flourishes were attached with the foam tape, I added some Elizabeth Craft glitter so the exposed pieces of the tape would not be sticky.  I really like the added glitz and hope that you do too!
