So all month long, Oddball Art is sponsoring a challenge with the theme of Lost Souls of Innocent Dolls. The really fun thing about this challenge, unlike many challenge groups, is it isn’t limited to paper-crafts. Anything you can think of using the Oddball Art Digital stamps is perfect to create to play along…we have seen framed art, tee-shirts, and even a coffee mug.
Today I am playing around in my art journal to create a page using this fun Theme.For this art journal page I pulled out three different Oddball digis, IMG32 Zombie Panda, IMG33 Floppy Ear Zombie Bunny, and IMG34 Zombie Sheep. The really cool thing about these digital stamps is that they are only 1 Dollar each!
I started by printing out the three images and coloring them up with my copic markers. I decided to keep them each in a pallet of brown.
I then fussy cute out each of the images and detailed the sides with a black pen so that there wasn’t the weird cut marks.
I decided today that these lost souls would be floating around space. So to create a dynamic space I started by rubbing different Dylusions paints around my 5×7 Dylusions art journal with a baby wipe. There isn’t any rhyme or reason to why I put colors anywhere, I just added lots of bright colors.
Then using a blending pad, I blended watered down black dylusion paint over everything, giving the page a murky space feeling.
To finish that space feeling off, I splattered white paint over everything.
Originally, I was going to tear some paper up and give my little dolls a place to stand, but in the end, I wanted to give them an almost angelic feeling to really round out the lost souls part of the theme. So I pulled out some butterfly ephemera to give the dolls wings.
I glued the wings onto the back of each doll, trimming them up to make them each fit the doll in a different way.
Add the three dolls to the space scene using matte soft fell, coating the entire page. Pull out a sentiment sticker and add it the page. Here I used a Tim Holtz sentiment sticker.
I think this sticker really is perfect for these little lost souls.
