29 Faces (Day 29) - Embossed Girl

Today's face was inspired by the colors in the current Play Date Cafe Challenge of Wine, Pumpkin and Moss.  Fall colors for sure and ones that I love - can't wait to start eating pumpkin treats - I need to rustle up Pumpkin Bread soon!  She is also for the current 2nd Floor Challenge to use embossing on an art journal page.
 I used one layer of UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel) to get the textured look you see.  More layers would have smoothed out the enamel but I kinda liked it to have that leathery look to go with her sentiment, 
"she never had any chance of education and she has always associated with rough people"
 Check out all the faces this month at Ayala Art!

I have so enjoyed following you during 29 faces - each one has been so lovely - and so different is either look or technique. Well done!

You really finished with a bang! This one is fantastic! I love the colors and she has such a beautiful, serene face. Hanging out with all those rough people hasn't rubbed off on her!
