All Gothed Up

OK, so here’s another one of those last minute things I was talking about.  LOL.  This one is for the current challenge over at Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls.  The challenge was to Goth Up Those Cuties! – to take something cute and make it a bit darker.  Just up my alley!

I took this journal…

And altered the front to look like this…

I gave her some dark eye shadow and some fishnets.

This bow-like thing is just a scrap of fabric that I burnt the edges on.  I’m a bit of a pyromaniac, tee hee.

The stamp I used is from The Greeting Farm.  The sentiment stamp and the paper are Martha Stewart.

Thanks for looking!

Laura... You did an awesome job on your journal cover and your coloring is wonderful! I have one question... did you paint it black first with acrylic paint? I am curious, as I have a couple books to alter myself! Thanks for joining the Dolls! Hugs!
