Compendium Week 3 Entry!

Hello, everybody! I wanted to share my entry for week 3 of the Compendum of Curiosities challenge at Studio L3. The week 3 challenge was to use TH's Alcohol Ink Monoprint technique. I also combined this challenge with the DIY Challenge over at that was to make 3 types of flowers based on tutorials provided by several ladies. The tutorials for the flowers are as follows: Fiesta Flower by Lisa Gregory, Prima Camelot type flower by Phsycomom (YouTube video), and Ribbon Rose by Tabbatha. This is what I came up with. Don't mind the embarrassing childhood photo of me...I had no part in choosing my outfit! This was me dressed up for some school pageant when I was in 1st or 2nd grade. Enjoy and Thanks for Looking!

Spanish Rose layout. I used 12 x 12 glossy paper, Alcohol Inks in Watermelon, Red Pepper, Sunshine Yellow, Sunset Orange, and Copper. I stamped the black flowers with Archival Ink then added a photo on a frame I cut out with my Cricut and the hand made flowers.

This close-up shows a Fiesta flower on the left and a Camelot-type flower on the right.

This close-up shows a Camelot-type flower at the bottom and a Ribbon rose at the top.
