TSG Sneak Peek - The Journey


Welcome to day one of the There She Goes sneak peek blog hops! If you have arrived here from the uber talented Jodi's blog then you are right where you should be...if not, please start at the beginning over at Chris's blog :D

Today, I get to share with you a set called The Journey that was illustrated by Chris Dark. This is an Asian based set with all kinds of goodies in it. I chose to use the very zen candle, polished stones and orchid image. Everything was water coloured with my tombow markers and a water brush. I then added some sponged edges with some Ranger Distress and SU inks. I also added some pencil cray shading with my prismas and gamsol to give it a little extra "oomph" ;) I chose to stay with a more simple layout so that my image was the main feature and to keep with a spa feeling.



Now that you have visited my, you are off to the amazing Lisa's Blog to finish off the rest of the hop and then hit the finish line over at the There She Goes blog for your chance to win! Don't forget to leave a comment for everyone along the way! Happy hopping and thanks for stopping by today :)
