Hello, crafty friends! Welcome to the BLOG HOP to celebrate the Jane Davenport ARTMOLOGY and MAKING FACES collections! These creative supplies are so much fun to play with, whether you are into card making or art journaling!
Many of these supplies are created with makeup in mind! The Palette Pastels are pastels that have been finely ground and pressed into a palette much like eyeshadow. They even blend much the same way! there are blenders that look like what you would use on your face, and Dramasticks that look like eyeliners. I do not do much art journaling, but these were so much fun to play with!
For the outline of this girl’s face, I used the Face Glimmer Plate and foiled it on my paper using some Copper foil. This created just the face outline with no hair. That’s the fun part- you now have a blank face and you can create a completely unique personality on your page!
I added skin tones using one of the blenders along with the Palette Pastels in the Birthday suit color palette. These blend beautifully, and there is such a wide variety of skin tones to work with! I am no expert at faces or makeup in general, so I kept the colors light with a more natural look. You could definitely play around with bolder colors, though!
Once her face was blended, I needed to give her some hair. I lightly penciled in some lines, and then added color using my colored pencils. I then blended out the lines a bit by adding some more pastels for a softer look.
I absolutely love the crown glimmer plate with this set, and I thought this girl needed to wear one! With the hair and the crown, she reminds me of Princess Buttercup!
I glimmered the crown and popped it up with foam adhesive on our Princess’s head. I also layered a few glimmered flowers around the crown. These flowers are from the June Glimmer Kit from Spellbinders and they look fabulous with this crown!
To finish this card, I added the sentiment from a Jane Davenport stamp set, and brushed on a little sparkle here and there with some shimmer pens!
I also wanted to create another very princess-like card, using just the crown as the main focal point. I glimmered another crown, as well as more flowers and die cut them all out. I absolutely love Glimmer plates that come with the coordinating dies!
I took some pink cardstock and stenciled on a little embossing paste, and also added some shimmery embossing powder over the paste. I then heat set it to melt the embossing powder into the paste. This gave a beautiful textured background with some glitter to it!
Then, I added my layers of pretty paper on top. I added a scrap of tissue paper with a strip of glitter paper running down the center of it. Then, I simply arranged the crown and foiled flowers in the center of the card.
I also had a little chipboard piece in my stash that looked like a tiara, so I added some gold embossing powder to that, melted it with my heat gun, and layered it just underneath the crown.
I brushed the whole crown with a sparkle pen and added some tiny, clear sequins for more shine. You can never have too much shine!
I had so much fun creating the face for this princess, and also creating a very feminine, sparkly princess card. I hope this shows a few ways to use the Jane Davenport Artomology and Making Faces collections!
