Hello! Today I have two projects to share with you, and they are on opposite ends of the spectrum. First, I’d like to share an art journal page that I have made with 2 of Rick St. Dennis‘ newest images. Then, I have a card for the latest A Day for Daisies challenge.
I had gotten the the Crow and Nosferatu images, and immediately thought that the crow needed to be on top of Nosferatu’s head. Odd perhaps…but, as you probably know already…I like odd.
I added a bit of color to Nosferatu, but I really didn’t need to do much, as he is just so cool on his own. Both of these images, by the way can be purchased directly from Rick’s Blog. And the Crow, actually comes in a very versatile set. Now please take a look at the beautiful black, textured swirls on my page. That was done with Dreamweaver Stencils‘ Art Nouveau Background and their black embossing paste.
In addition, I used 2 colors of acrylic paint, Memento ink, cardboard, Diet Cola Memory Mist, and a sentiment from Ginger’s House. But here’s a question…who is saying the sentiment? Will the Crow try to destroy Nosferatu…or the other way around? Now…on to A Day for Daisies.
The challenge at A Day for Daisies is “Your Favorite Technique.” Well, my favorite technique is the Spotlight technique. I have used it many times on my blog. I think it’s a great effect. I worked with Mermaid of Star for my card. She is just lovely.
I colored her with alcohol markers and watercolor markers. I also used a bit of Mermaid Stickles on her tail. I love the way her hair is drawn. I am going to be using this mermaid a lot I am sure.
My background was done with an embossing folder and Core’dinations cardstock that I later sanded. Can you see the bit of gold foiling at the top of the card? That’s from a DCWV stack.
So, like I said…totally opposite ends of the spectrum, but still very Alison. I hope you liked my creations! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Two absolutely beautiful creations like you say completely different to each other. I have to say I love them both.
The spotlight technique is one of my faves too.

I love them both! The first one makes me start singing…"she's got a date at midnight, with Nosferatu"…haha. The spotlight technique is so cool. I've never been brave enough to try it.:)
lol I thought it was going to be a vampire mermaid all in one…I had to check…lol these are both beautiful! I love Nosferatu so creepy! and your background rocks! and a day for daisies has such awesome images…you colored her beautifully! spotlights are so fun!
Love your page! I bought both of Rick's stamps. So cool how you used them together. and your ADFD is just beautiful. I'm quite fond of the spotlight technique, myself. Fabulous work! xxD
