Dragon Girl

     Our third challenge at River Of Creativity is to make anything you like as long as there are 'no hearts or mushy stuff' on it. It doesn't have to be papercraft, it can be anything that you have made.
      The image panel on this picture is a digital paper from Vectoria Designs, I don't do much with digital images but this caught my imagination because I love dragons. The whole pack has my head buzzing with ideas for a journal, but for now it's just a picture to hang on the wall.
      After printing the image I took a piece of white card and some Distress inks and made a corresponding backing sheet. Spritzing with water when finished to achieve the speckled effect.
      I cut a dark blue mat layer to go between the image panel and the backing sheet, then cut another blue mat to go behind the backing sheet, it's amazing how much it changes the picture.
      To give the picture some dimension and interest I printed another page from the set and die cut it with one of Jamie Rodgers Canvas Collection dies. The sides were glued down but I used some foam tape in the middle to give it support.
      I was hoping to have it framed before now but I haven't found the right one yet, when I do I think it may have to be altered slightly to fit with the subject, I'll update this post when it's done.

      Please come and join us at River Of Creativity, we accept anything you have made as long as we can see our chosen theme in there somewhere.
