* Vera Lane Studio: Hermione


Take a look at who's come to Vera Lane Studio! It's Hermione come to join her friend Harry!

Hermione comes with her cat, Crookshanks, and three sentiments. 

Here is the art journal page I made:

She's a little cutie! I coloured Hermione and Crookshanks with Copics. They both have Glossy Accent eyes and white Posca pen highlights. They are fussy cut and popped on foam pads onto the background with a torn strip of wash tape to ground them. 
The background was made with Gelatos and Neocolor crayons which I blended with my finger. I added some gold acrylic paint very thinly, again with my finger. In the middle of the page I applied modelling paste through a brick wall stencil. I gave the "bricks" a wash of distress oxides to colour them and added brick stamping in Vintage Photo around the edges. The edge of the page was darkened with black Neocolor and blended in. I finally spritzed the page with iridescent gold Glimmer Mist.

Hermione's page is part of a double spread with Harry:

Hermione                                    Harry Potter

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane.
