This is my journal page for the challenge ART JOURNAL JOURNEY, this month the theme is 'FRIDA KAHLO'. I really like this fantastic and so passionate Mexican painter (1907 -1954).
I want to thank to Valerie (from Bastelmania) for making so many wonderful examples and to Susi for this great challenge.

I drew the portrait (and flowers, leaves, bird...) with pencils and then I added Caran D'Ache watercolour pencils. To create the background I used two stencils and Tim Holtz Distress Ink and also VersaCraft.

Esta es mi página de mi cuaderno de arte para participar en AJJ, este mes el tema es 'Frida Kahlo'. Me gusta mucho esta pintora mejicana tan fantástica y tan apasionada (1907 -1954).
Quiero agradecer a Valerie (de Bastelmania) por hacer tantos ejemplos maravillosos y a Susi por este gran reto.

He dibujado y pintado a Frida (y flores, hojas, pájaro ...) con lápices y lápices acuarelables Caran D'Ache. Para crear el fondo usé dos plantillas y Tim Holtz Distress Ink y también VersaCraft.

Have a great week!

¡Que tengáis una buena semana!
