Yeahhhhh, I am this week's guest designer for Quirky Crafts!!!!!

I was really pleased when winning the Quirky Crafts Challenge, and even more pleased when asked to be theur guest designer! I received some digipapers and some digistamps to work with, and I picked this gorgeous 'peacock lady' by Alipeeps which I think is just brilliant. 
I printed her out on tissue paper and coloured her in with my trusted Copics. After gluing her down on the background with matte gel medium, I painted the darkblue centers of the feathers and the greek ovals around the centers with metallic Lumière Paint. Around her face an the hair I added some shadow with a Faber Castel big brush Pitt pen.
To do the background I started with gessoing the page after which I randomly applied Rayher Antique Medium. I hadn't used it before, but it turned out to be this glue like medium and after drying it actually looked and felt like dried glue. The surface was shiny and very smooith and since I wanted to use a LSG spray I decided to add a layer of transparant gesso before spraying in order to give the spray something to hold on to. I used LSG Treasure Island Aqua spray which gave the lovely aqua shimmer in the background. 
Now in the background you can still see bits of the digipaper I used. The dots were made with a TCW stencil and Copper coloured Maya Gold. The edges of the spread were distressed with a Gelato in chocolate colour. And this was the endresult (to give you an idea of the size, it was made in the small Dylusions journal). 
I hope you like my spread an will start looking for challenges tomorrow. For now, it's bedtime, tomorrow is my first workday after a 2 weeks holiday. Have a great week, hugs Frea
