Colleen's Page in Joanna's Fairy Tale Journal


Joanna's journal is very wide when opened, so I thought I would do a story across the page.

I  love this theme of fairytales Joanna.

I started with a pastel background made using dylusions paint rubbed on with a babywipe. I added some collage pieces of painted napkin & glued on my images which were originally colouring in pages from Pinterest.

I coloured in the characters with a mixture of copics & other markers. This was not easy as the gel medium I used to glue them on with was resisting the colour. I apologies Joanna for some of the colouring which is patchy in places. With black ink I stamped some text & stars in the background & a larger star stamp was stamped with white paint. I then went around each area with a black pen & then with distress crayons around each one as well. I loved the distress crayons, they went on like smooth butter, but also resisted the writing. Life wasn't meant to be easy they say.

And they lived happily ever after.

Hope you like this Joanna, it will soon be home.
