Hello, my dear crafty friends, hope you all had a great weekend. It's been a very busy week to me last week with all the kids' activities and I really enjoyed spending time with them. For this week, let's do something fun, too. At Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we challenge you to create something starts with N - ‘N’ is for  Naughty or Nice, Nautical, Navy, New, November, Neutral, whatever you can think of! We will be looking forward to seeing what ‘N’ you use for your crafty project!

I was inspired to create an art journal page with a cute nerd girl.

I really love the Simon Says Old School Sunglasses Wafer Dies so I decided to create an art journal page with a lovely girl to wear the glasses.

The background of this art journal page was colored with with Distress Spray Stain and Distress Paints, I stamped some patterns with Distress Paints and then added some randomly images with Tim Holtz Rubs.

The girl was sketched with Faber-Castell Pitt pens on a piece of paper, and colored with Faber-Castell Polychromos Colored Pencils. I also used Prismacolor pencil white to soften the colors.

I cut the and adhered the girl image on the page using Tombow Glue. The glasses was die cut with Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Sunglasses Wafer Die and Big Shot, then pasted on the page with Tombow Glue.
