A Quote Favorite
Here is another of my Stampotique creations that I posted on their blog this month.
I saw this cute monster hugging the owl (my little hoo hoo by Kira
Nichols) I had to have it! Of course I also had to have her owl tree. I
started this page in my re-purposed book so the background is book
print. This art journal is home to my favorite quotes. For the page
acrylic paint is used as the background. The leaves at the top of the
page are stenciled with archival. When stamping on acrylic it is best to
use archival ink, the paint makes a slippery surface causing other inks
to smear easily. I randomly stamped the mushrooms at the bottom of the
page. Tissue paper was stamped with more mushrooms (black ink) which
were then cut out & carefully adhered with decoupage glue. This
helped to create depth on the page. After stamping the cute monster and
coloring him in he was pop-doted on the page adding even more depth. I
put the saying that comes with him on an inked tag. The owl branch stamp
and quote finished the page off. What I like about this page is the
depth created. The monster cutie looks like he is standing in a field of
mushrooms. What is your favorite cutie monster?
