One Person Accountable

The theme of Roll Call - being accountable is continuing on The Documented Life Project 2016 while our art challenge told us to use mark-making in black and white over colour. I managed to find yet another saying about our theme that says: "There is only one person who can be held accountable for the results we get in life". 
 I went looking for a suitable image to be my focal point and was originally going to use the figure as a mask but when I cut her out (from a fashion magazine) and put her on the page for size I decided that I wanted her as she was as she toned in rather well with the vintage paper I had collaged on previously.
 Techniques used: collage, rubber stamping and stencilling, as well as that mark - making with black and white markers over colour.
 Tools used: rubber stamp (from Impress Me Now, so pleased to have re-discovered their stamps that were hidden somewhere in my painting shed!) and stencilling. I went a bit mad with the stencils on this spread and here are the Stencilgirl Products stencils I used: L402 Verdant Moon in the background, S264 Doodle It Tornado Flowers, S376 Hash Marks, S306 Text and Texture Explore and finally the smallest stencil from the October 2014 Stencilgirl Club

Love the black and white over the lime green and pink. The saying is so true.
