I've actually had this page done for ages and was saving it for later in case it "fit" into a challenge - the only thing was, all of the challenges at Make it Colourful have been more complex than a "simple" image! LOL But this serves as a great reminder for other things going on and I'm finally going to share Julliette with you!

For my project I used Julliette and Victorian Chaise by Make it Crafty and believe it or not, I've colored them separately then cute each out and poped them on the page with dimensional foam inbetween each layer. To help redefine the lines after cutting, I took my Copic Multiliner brush marker out and went around the edges in black.

I was working on my technique of shadows in all those folds of her dress and ruffles and this might not have been the perfect image to start on - but it gave me plenty of chances to experiment with! I like how some areas turned out better than other and in the end I felt more comfortable with this look.

The journal page was decorated with some new black paper I found plus scraps of script, calendar and musch sheet decorative papers. I wanted to stay away from laces and ribbons and keep the focus on the eligant dress - so I used a piece of film strip for the horizontal element and the embelishments were kept plain in color but fancy for the theme.

I can't image what walking around in all those layers of cloth would be like but I would sure love to have curlylocks like her. ;D Here's a close up of her face and torso.

Don't forget about the Make it Colourful Christmas-Birthday Blog Hop HERE - where EVERYONE on the hop is giving away something and there is an adorable Make it Crafty freebie that you don't want to miss out on!
