Featured Artist Week: Rachel Anderson

Welcome to our monthly “Artist of the Week” here at SweetPea Stamps (SPS). Our artist this week is Rachel Anderson. I love Ms. Anderson’s fantastical images. I chose to create with “Forget-Me-Not.” You can find her images in digital format or rubber stamp format on Plate #173, whichever you prefer for your little pieces of art.

I kept “Forget-Me-Not” very simple. I used Copics in blues and greens and added some Spicas in blue and green. I did some highlighting with a white gel pen. I also thought that the little forget-me-nots needed some centers, so I dug up my gold acrylic paint and a detail brush and went to town with little gold dots.

The only embellishments that I used were Spellbinder’s Radiant Rectangles and some pearls from my stash. I will have more details on my blog, AJ's Designs, tomorrow.

I hope that you can play in our challenge at One SweetChallenge. If you do enter, and you use an SPS image, please share your creations with us in our SPS Facebook group. To keep up on all the happenings at SPS, take a visit to our SPS Facebook page.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you stop by every day for a little Sweet Pea inspiration!
