Nourish – Frida Challenge for Gauche Alchemy

Hey there!  I thought I’d share my project I did for the Frida Challenge over at Gauche Alchemy.  I went with an art journal spread I did based on a saying that has been attributed to Frida. It spoke volumes to me.


First, I used three colors of jewel-toned mists to lay down a background. Then using Dina Wakley’s Swirl stencil and a baby wipe, I removed some of the color to give a shadow-effect. I then painted the left side with crackle paint, but it really didn’t take very well. Lesson learned……crackle and mists do not work well together.


Next, I printed out a picture of Frida that I liked and adhered it to my page with matte gel medium. I then stamped the saying using Stampotique’s Type Alphabet, cut it out, adhered it to my pages and outlined with a yellow Sharpie paint pen.


I outlined the pages using Art Anthology Dimensional Crystals in Guava and Red Corvette, then glued on half-pearls. The page is now finished and I liked the way it turned out. I honestly believe whatever doesn’t kill us, does nourish us.

Now it’s your turn! Let’s see what you can come up with for the challenge.

Until later…………..
