The bid to stimulate hair growth...


Sophie-with-hair-journal-page1

So my niece S will be 2 at the end of the month and she still has very little hair. Apparently wearing a pair of shoes bought by an aunt on the father's side of the family is supposed to stimulate hair growth. I did that of course [gotta try right? *LOL*] but still no luscious hair growth in sight...*winks*


Guess I have to manufacture a  full head of fiber-paste hair for her....maybe this will stimulate hair growth? *LOL* Still into my windows in art journal phase...so happy that my tag punch can come into play. :)


The background was created with my latest obsession - Derwent Inktense Blocks [Hey Miae, I played with mine!]. I coloured one side of the journal page, spritzed water, blended with a paintbrush, then closed the book to get a mirror page on the adjacent page. The dots were applied using an Art Deco stencil and Faber Castell Artist Big Brush Pen. I fussy-cut some blooms from patterned paper [Zeus and Zoe kit]. Then a wash of Tattered Angels Glitter Glam for a sparkly finish.


So glad I started on my art journal journey. It's been really fun. If you've started on something new this year, why not play with Zeus and Zoe's New Beginnings challenge? The prize is an Art Deco stencil and some fabulous paints. Yum. :)

WOW... This is is sooooo fun and cute at the same time. Love the window space to put the photo and the funky dress + hair you have made for you nice. I'm sure she will grow her own nice and thick when she gets a bit older.
Delicious background you have made, love the colours!

I love the dress you made and those flowers at the bottom are gorgeous amongst the greens and art deco... fussy cutting pays off!! Very fun journaling pages Yvonne!

Audrey Pettit said...

Well, doesn't Miss S look beautiful with her full head of hair? ;)
This is so fun, Yvonne! I'm loving your art journal! The background is sooo pretty. Love that you made it by doing one side and folding it over. That takes me back to early childhood memories, and I love that. The window cut outs are awesome. Really, really love her flow y dress, too!

Helen Tilbury said...

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

Your journal looks wonderful and I think Sophie looks good with and without hair. It will grow when it is ready.

Very cute. I like how you turned the tag punch upside down to make the frame for her face.

sandi said...

Wow! This is fantastic! Love it. So colorful!

Cindy deRosier said...

That's awesome. A friend of mine swears that shaving a girl's head on her 1st birthday means a full head of hair will grow back in. She has 3 daughters and it seems to have worked for them, but personally I'd just wait and enjoy the time where there are no battles dealing with tangles, styling, etc!

Such a cute cute page. Hmmm. I am thinking I need me a pair of those shoes.

Hugs~

I LOVE that you point out what you used where in the photo- it's such an easy way access the behind the scenes info I'm always looking for in blogs! Pinning for future consideration- I have very little digital knowledge so I'll have to figure out how I can pull this off for myself, lol. GREAT page- I saw your work over at the Julie B blog today- yay!
