Something green

 Hello everyone, 

Welcome to my blog! It is Tuesday so that means another project for AALL & Create. I have made a journal page with one of Janet's latest stamp sets. I think these frogs are adorable, they all look like the lost the plot a little! That's why I like them; I loose the plot regularly too! lol 

Here's how I made it:

Lesson learned last time when my paper buckled very badly I thought I'd use watercolour paper because I was going to use lots of water again. It still buckled a little but not as much. I started off with putting on some washi tape. 

Next: I used texture paste and this stencil. 

I used a combination of pigment powders and Lines Gang sprays to five the whole thing some (green) colour. There are lots of different shades of green. 

Next I rolled over white paint with a brayer. Not only to tone is down but also to make the texture stand out more. 

Next: I stamped the background with these three sets. I used green and black ink. 

I then stamped the focal image and the sentiment I was going to use. I used white Neenah card stock for the frog so I could colour him with Copic Markers. The sentiment was stamped on the same watercolour paper as the I used for the background so there won't be any colour difference. 

Here he is in all his green splendour! 

Here is the whole page. I added the frog to the page and also the sentiment and used a normal graphite pencil to adde some lines here and there. 

I used the following AALL & Create materials:

#338 - Background Noise by Janet Klein
