Indie Girl

Hello! It's Amy here today, to share a mixed media layout I created using lots of  UmWowStudio goodness!! My daughter had taken a selfie, while wearing yellow tinted glasses, her earbuds, and a necklace I wore frequently as a 90's "grungester"; or in her words...a "grunge hipster." I thought the photo begged for a free and hip vibe.

 I started with the Light Bulb Mask, and simply sponged on black ink over the a fairly heavy layer. I then added a center stripe of stamping and washi tape, and went over all of this with splashes of bright pink and glittery turquoise paint. 

After building layers of paper for my photo to perch atop, I added 2 pieces from the Mustard 29 and Make a Wish  flair sets in the corners.
To add movement and awesome interest to the page, I layered up bits from Gear Mash as well as chevron and star confetti, layered hearts , and finally, the This End Up phrase chipboard. I left them "naked" for the fun contrast in color.
Thank you for having a look at my project featuring my "indie girl" today, and I hope you are inspired to get your stenciling, flair, and chip on!

~ Amy
