Friday 13 April 2012


Yesterday I came across a digi store called Fine Arts by Robert Jackson, as well as a large collection of digital stamps there are some fabulous pencil drawings and paintings by the same gentleman. It's definitely worth popping over and taking a look, and make sure you check out the graphite drawings section.

A lot of the digital stamps are of an Ethnic origin, but there are also a lot of other bits and pieces that are suitable for everyone, check out the shoes and also the hats in the Come Sunday category.

I have been looking for an image to go with a freebie Word art that I picked up from Create with TLC a couple of weeks ago, and I found just what I was looking for in store.

Now I may have mentioned one or twice that I am freaked out by images with no mouths and this one has no facial features whatsoever, so is extra freaky to me, but I love the pose and the haughty way she has her nose in the air (if she actually had a nose LOL!)
I have added some glamour dust to her wrap and blinged up the top of her dress and headband, after all every Diva needs a bit of bling!

Image - Diva - Robert Jackson - Coloured in photoshop
Word art - Freebie - Create with TLC
Martha Steward Border punch - half daisy
Stick on Gems - MeiFlower

I found Roberts site a few weeks ago and I love the images, I am also freaked out by stuff without mouths but I find ones without any features intriguing, a bit like a mannequin. Love the colouring and the glitter makes her wrap look extra special. Hugs, Amanda x

Like you I found this faceless image a bit creepy at first, but the more you look at it the more you can 'see' her expression. Fab image and gorgeous card.

Trina said...
