I have really been enjoying art journaling and have recently discovered Mission Inspiration. When I saw the colors and theme for this month's page, I turned directly to the new Ruby Dog Days image from Polkadoodles!
I have combined her with a blush plaid paper, tree die, and butterfly dies from Winnie Special Moments and flowers from Horace and Boo Flower Foliage.
I started by coloring Ruby with Copics, placing in some eyelets to the bags along with twine for the handles and adhering a gem to her bag.
I washed over the blush plaid with a pistachio colored gesso and my texture comes from Glass Glitter Beads through an arrow stencil. I added my paper cuts and focal images and added marks with a sponge to the tree. My border is simple using yellow around the edges.
This quote just seemed perfect as I was seeing Ruby walking home through a park from her busy day of errands and includes the "nature" word from the prompt. I finished with Spun Sugar Splats that are a little difficult to see, but they are there! ; )
