When I came across this quote the other day "Take a deep breath, its just a BAD DAY not a BAD LIFE " I knew it was one I wanted to use in my Journal and seemed fitting to use when I started My page yesterday as I was feeling grumpy and fed up, though it was a perfect sunny day.
Here is my completed page. I started off by printing a Digital Stamp from a kit called Block Party Stamps by Ziggle Designs by Kami form Scrap Orchard, Which was another freebie I downloaded ages ago. I printed one of the stamps on to A4 paper and stuck onto my double spread. I then used some Blue ink and a Imagination crafts stencil template called Butterfly Blossom Border to create little flowers in the back ground. For the Quote I used Black Foam letters and added some white paint to make the quote stand out.
I then used a template by Crafters Workshop called Mini Bricks and some Texture paste mixed with Red and Black Acrylic paint to create a brick border on the left and right sides of the page. Once my Characters were stuck in place I stamped some Clouds and used some Black Paint and Texture paste to create rain clouds and then added gold droplet rhinestones as they showed up better as raindrops. I also added some leaves and flowers too.
I decided to use The mouse and Hedgehog stamp from the Country Companions Stamps I had and so stamped them and coloured them in using Promarkers. For the Mouse I used Sandstone, Ginger, Pale Pink and Arctic Blue.
