Whimsical Big Eye Melody the Mermaid Image No. 321 By Sabrina

hello friends of OddBall Art, I'm Sabrina and today I'm here to keep you company with my art journal ... my first post for OddBall Art, I'm so excited !!!


To create my Art Journal page I printed Whimsical Big Eye Melody the Mermaid Image No. 321 and colored with Prismacolor




On the pages of my Art Journal I laid out the plaster and, once dried, the fabulous Nuvo mousse, are fantasitche to create the backgrounds!

With the help of a stencil I spread and created thickness with Nuvo Glimmers ... glittered and create a fabulous thickness !!



I waited for the Nuvo Glimmer to be dry and I crizzed the bubbles with the transparent Nuvo Crystal Drops and I glued the fabulous Whimsical Big Eye Melody the Mermaid Image No. 321


Finally I cut out a sentiment with my Silhouette Cameo and I inserted it in my pages of Art Journal ... also some white dots created with Nuvo Crystal Drops and my pages are decorated!



Adorable, right? Find Whimsical Big Eye Melody the Mermaid Image No. 321 in the OddBall Art shop and more details about the products used on my blog Sabrina Lamarina Card Maker !

Kiss Sabrina

There Were Too Many Other Options

Hey Oddballs!!!  It's EK from ekgorman designs sneaking in today to ask:  Have you played along with the current August Lost Souls of Innocent Dolls?  

Well, why not?  Did you know that there is a chance to win free digital stamps if you use an Oddball Digital stamps and play along with the theme?  And lets be honest...lost souls of innocent dolls...that theme works with 90% of all the Oddball Art!


Today I am playing along with the IMG48 Big Eyed Zombie Girl and trying to create a since of innocence with my CAS card.


For this project I pulled out my copic markers and colored up my little zombie girl.  To create a little bit of a sour skin tone I pulled out my E40, E41 and E42 to give her a little bit of that sickly tone.

Also I die cut out a panel in the card and added something that didn't make any since, an off white pineapple paper.  Yes you are right, the panel is illogical, but I love the idea that this little lady is looking out to something beautiful, yet surreal, without creating a real window.


I finally added a Tim Holtz snarky sentiment sticker, because frankly, this is the speech my little angels give me each and every day when they get into a bit of trouble.  

I am really looking forward to seeing what you do for the challenge.  If you need a new digital stamp feel free to use the code DTEK10 to get 10% off your Oddball purchase!!!
