* Vera Lane Studio: Potter


Today at Vera Lane Studio we have a new release. 
It's Potter! And it's Harry ... and ... he's so adorable with his owl, Hedwig!

I made a journal page:

I'm not giving anything away, but you're only seeing half of my page!!
I coloured Harry and Hedwig with Copics and added some white highlights. I gave Harry's spectacles some Glossy Accent lenses and Hedwig has Glossy accent eyes. I fussy cut them and added some foam tape to the back, so they would stand out from the background.
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 next spritzed the page with iridescent gold Glimmer Mist.
Harry was popped onto the page and some sequin stars placed around his wand. One of the sentiments was cut into strips and adhered to the page, then, when dry, outlined in a scribbly way with a black fine liner pen. The white sentiment looked quite stark on the page, so I used a blending sponge to add a little colour.


I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. 
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
