Lily Calendar Page

Happy Friday everyone...time for a new challenge at The Outlawz Copic/Promarker group. Our theme this week is Anything Goes...and of course we have a new calendar page file ready for you to download, so hope you'll come and join us :)

I've made another calendar page...going great guns with this project so let's hope it continues right through the year!!


This is the very beautiful Lily from Michelle Perkett. I LOVE this image, it's one of my favourites from Michelle. I started with a basic calendar page and cut a circle in JAC paper so I could glitter it with SU Dazzling Diamonds, to make a sparkly moon.....


Then I coloured Lily with Copics and cut her out. I placed her over the moon with foam dots. I've been keeping the pages to only one or two layers but this image needed to sit over the moon to achieve the effect I wanted...one fat page probably won't hurt lol

Here's a CU of Lily in all her splendour:


She's VERY, VERY SPARKLY!!!!!  I had a bit of a disaster with her wings :(  I had them coloured and blended nicely, using 2 different colour families and decided to try out my new tub of SU Champagne Shimmer Paint...BAD MOVE!!!!....made her wings look all muddy...GRRRRRRR...was supposed to make them all beautiful and shiny!  This was the last touch to finish the image and I thought I was going to have to bin her and start again...not happy Jan!!!  My wonderfully inventive friend, Helen was here and suggested I try the new iridescent SU embossing powder to see if it would fix it...it's definitely IRIDESCENT lol  (I love it and will get some next time I order)  It helped but I'm still not 100% happy with it as it's not what I envisioned :(...and they looked so lovely before I stuffed them up!! Oh well, you live and learn...and that's one thing about me, I won't make the same mistake twice!! The leaves wrapped around her dress are finished with SU Crystal Effects.

Absolutely beautiful Lynne! I don't think the wings look bad at all, but I know how you feel. Messed a few projects up myself with that "last" touch. :-) You are going to have one gorgeous calendar girl! I have this image and have colored her a couple of times, but I don't think I've ever done it right. You did. :-) Hugs!
