Second Art Journal Page :)

Another Art Journal Page from me to share. I knew I wanted to use the Fox from the free set of stamps received with the new Get Stamping Magazine and thanks to a friend reminding me of a favourite film of mine I found this Quote from Fox and The Hound.

"Darlin' forever is a long long time and time has a way of changing things"

So here is my completed Page:

I covered the pages in Gesso first and then scraped Kaisercraft Tropical  Water Acrylic Paint on top.  Once dry I sprayed Dylusions Sky Blue ink Through a 6x6 template called Mini Cubist by Crafters Workshop.

I then used a framed Stamp from the set, Stamped it on to card stock and coloured the edges in  Promarkers Lush Green so It would stand out and then Apple Green for the inside. I did the writing with my Black Glaze Sukura Pen. 

I did the same with this part of the Quote, but when Stamping the Frame I felt it was too large so stamped a part of it and then  joined it to make it smaller if that makes sense. Once stuck down I used my Promarker True Blue to go round the outside of the frames so they stood out. 

More about the background I used the Tree Stamp from the free set and  only inked the leafy part and stamped all over the pages before sticking down the Journalling and the leafs I did using Dylusions Rubber Stamp set called Doodle Parts, which I stamped using green ink but went over some of the leaves with a my Promarker Lush Green. I also used a boarder stamp from Dylusions Further round the Edge Set which I stamped around edges of the pages.

Here is the Fox, isn't it so cute, I used Promarkers Raw Sienna, Cocoa and Burnt Orange to Colour them in. The second fox on the left of the page I stamped and cut out then coloured the reverse of the image, you can see he isn't as cute but I think it has character lol.  

I learnt a lesson in making this page and that is to have more patience to let paints etc. dry and also stick the next page to last to double up as when doing this page I caused some damage to my last page. Thankfully I was able to restore it and it doesn't look to bad, but still wishing it had not happened.

Lovely page, did wonder about the quote, thought you were having troubles!!

I've got the fox stamp too. Now I've seen your pages I am in the mood to make a series of 'something' containing great Disney quotes.
Cheers for the idea!

Not stopped by for a while, hope you and the children are doing well.
