Boho Gypsy by Linda Pearson

 Hi Bee Arters!!  

In this journal project once again I have integrated the Bohemian Bliss collection designed by Sue Smyth.  I wanted to create a page that incorporated a face surrounded by a bouquet of flowers and feathers coming back to thoughts of the iconic artist Frido Khalo for inspiration.  I hope this project inspires you to create your own page using this amazing collection.

Eyebrows and eyelashes:  add detail to the eyebrows using Life of colour pens black to add long lashes to the eyes and strands to eyebrows to create messy brows (like Frida Kahlo).
