Step Outs Your Box Saturdays -- Magazine Art


Here's my entry for this week's Step Outside Your Box Saturdays challenge. The challenge was to use a magazine or catalog image. I almost skipped this one, as I didn't feel the least bit inspired, but I came across this picture of a female model in the January, 2008 issue of Elle and was captured by the blank look on her face. I took it to Kinko's, photocopied and reduced it, then colored the copies in with my Caran d'Ache Neocolor II Watersoluble crayons and went over them with water. I love these crayons, but I rarely remember to use them. Numbers are stamps with the Jive Alphabet by Stamp Craft.

This is wonderful, Cindy!! When I looked at the photo you posted I could've sworn that the images were like that. Those crayons sound awesome. Are they anything like the portolio oil pastels? I'm glad you did the challenge! :)
