Blue jean girl...

 Use "bumped stencil" technique and add your own face...
This month I had chosen to use the Bruce Springsteen page of my calendar...and promptly forgot to take a photo of the original...
He was wearing a bandanna, which is a habit I share(as well as the curly hair) AND
I also have a denim waistcoat lol so it was easy which bits of the original page to leave visible.
 I found an old photo from my youth and did a quick likeness in place of the Boss, as well as adding a few curves to his waistline lol.
 Now to try out the "bumped" stencilling technique.
This is where you stencil in a dark colour...
 move the stencil over slightly, then cover with a lighter colour.
I used a set of stencils by Artistcellar from Tam's Whimsy series.
 This technique gives a wonderfully simple 3D effect to your page...
 A quick bit of defining with a black posca pen...
and Bobs your Auntie :D
The Poe quote reads...
"...And the maiden she lived with no other thought
than to love and be loved by me."
(from Annabel Lee)

Enjoy :D XXX
