Crowns are a regular feature in art journal layouts. I mean, who doesn’t want to be Queen for a day?

This week we’ll keep it simple by using a paper crown and one of the following fill-in-the-blank phrases: “Queen of _______” or “Queen of the __________ “ or “_________ Queen” Your phrase can be anything. A few ideas include: - Queen of the sofa. - Queen bee. - Queen of the house. - Drama Queen. - Beauty Queen. - Queen of the cookie jar. - Queen of Dancing or Dancing Queen. - Queen of England. Okay, maybe not that one. But I think you get the idea. Credit: Becca Bonneville - Call Me Queen Bee Paper crowns – chances are, you have one in your TLP digital stash. You may use a sticker. If you use a brush, be sure to cut it out so that it looks like a paper crown. If you do not have a paper crown in your stash – no worries! These are easy to make; all it takes is one rectangle and three or more triangles. Or, get creative with banners. Paper crown made in photoshop using 1 rectangle shape + 3 triangles. Shapes merged, then papers clipped to crown: Crowns made with banners: Kits used: Lynn Grieveson Be Kind and Just Jaimee Storyteller Dec 2016. And, my final layout: Queen of the Wild Things (should probably rename to Queen of Volia App ). Challenge Requirements: 1.
