AASJ 5: Tree as Spirit for Louise...

Sharing my pages in Louise's "Tree" Round Robin Journal.

At first I was a little unsure how to tackle this theme but I found a great quote that gave me some inspiration and I had some digi stamps that I thought were just perfect to make this page in "my" style of journaling so I hope Louise likes what I have done - I'm really happy with how it turned out!
I started by coating the pages in gesso and then adding some acrylic paints in tree and sky colours and I used my brayer to move the blobs of paint around on the pages to cover them.

I added some stencilling to both the top and bottom of all the pages using white paint - I love the effect this gave - nice and subtle.

I printed off the digi stamps I wanted to use on the pages - they are from Vera Lane Studio - I'm on the DT so I really love creating with these great designs!!
Quite a bit of colouring with my pastel pencils - then sprayed with fixative - took awhile and then had to fussy cut everything out!!!!

I also printed the quote out on kraft coloured paper, tore each word out individually and arranged on the front flap - adhered everything and added a few paper leaves as well.

Some close up pics of the main images:

And here are the pages - I loved having the flap to work on as part of the pages - it made a great place for the quote to then open out to the full pages with the characters and TREES!!!

Happy Journalling!!!
