Playing with Dolls - by Lisa Oxley

Howdy Bloggers ,Lisa Here with a Friday update and confession.
I've been playing with Art Dolls, again .
47 and still playing with Dolls, rad dolls, digital masterpieces and 
available for you if thats where your creative journey would like to make a pit stop . 
Mischief Circus have super rad downloads for you to print and 
play with ,to create fun funky pieces in your Journal.
Today I'm going to share with you a couple of pages I have been working on 
  Ok so this is not rocket science.I'm playing with products like  acrylic paints, mists and inks to create bold backgrounds and then sticking on my fussy cut doll(yeah i'm not a big fussy cutter) and attatching it onto my background using matt medium.More drying time and then a little posca and pencils to "Jazz Up" the page ,finishing with the stabilo magic pencil (or black water colour pencil) to make shadow and create depth.

Heres another page I've been playing with ,I started by creating an acrylic paint background using Dylusions paints and a WOW stencil, then I have used Prima Black Sand Texture Paste to create another layer and interest points at the side of my page .
I found my Art doll to cut out 
 I then cut a couple of sea horses out of a childrens book and found some serviettes that support the watery ocean theme I am looking for .I attached the torn servittes with Matt Medium and added a little Prima Acrylic paint in blue gold for a shimmery highlight.

 I then attached my mermaid and sea horses using Matt Medium
Thinking I needed a little more watery effect I added Colourblast Deep Blue Texture Paste using a circle stencil and I love the result.

I still need to add the final details to this piece with Pencil and Posca.

Like most things in my Art Journal , one could always add just a little more to the overall piece.
Perpetually a work in progress.
Thanks for Dropping By, see you next week .
