Yup! I felt like 'switching it up'. And I did NOT feel like doing the traditional, multi-textured, pile of masks, mists, sprays, embossed etc etc pages.
I wanted to do whimsical. Mainly cos of the Lawn Fawn die cut clouds & suns, & the stamped hot air balloons that I'd gotten a-hold of from the lovely Carol Theng.....& the MOOD BOARD over at SCRAP AROUND THE WORLD was PERFECT for what I had drifting around in my mind.
Took me 2 & 1/2 hours. From go to whoa....pretty good, huh??!!!!
Tusia's mood board:
I took the hot air balloon.....the blue....& that whimsical image top right......and came up with this.....actually, I'll show you what I sort of started with first. This:
And ended with this...well, actually this is part of it...so read this first......& then - I promise......
...this is the whole finished art journal double!!!!!
And my 'forest' is actually just a scrap of left-over paper with ink sprayed on it....works for me, though....can you see my 'trees'????!!!!!!!!!!!!
A couple more closies:
My die cut clouds....stamped, gessoed then glimmer glazed around the edges!!!!
Gelatoed suns, too.....
and Staedtler pens were used to colour these in.......thanks so much for checking this one out.....
Cheers, Lizzy ♥♥♥
