Journal Page inspired by JoFY 10th Birthday Project

Well, yesterday we were give a right treat by Jo Firth-Young for Paperartsy - a beautiful framed picture with her line of stamps.  I didn't have a frame to hand, so took some of the ideas and used them on a double paged journal spread.

 I started by using Grunge Paste (my new, nice and runny tub!) through the mini Art Is stencil randomly over both pages.
before painting with Ice Blue and Bora Bora Frescos, blending and merging the colours in the middle..



I added some Sage at the bottom, and adding some Limelight applied and blending into the Sage with a babywipe.

Stamped the large beach hut (JoFY16), using it as a shed, as Jo did, on white card, and two trees (JoFY15) in Wendy Vecchi's archival ink 'potting soil' and colouring with Frescos. I used various browns for the shed

Borrowed Jo's idea of stamping a whole load of leaves (didn't enjoy cutting these all out!!) on some green patterned paper, adding Hey Pesto to some of the paper first, for this I used Wendy's Fern Green archival ink.
There were as fiddly to stick to the trees as they were to cut out...

Stamped some of the grass border (JoFY11) in the same green archival ink across the bottom
and hiding inside the shed is one of the birds from JoFY15)

The other birds in the top of the left hand page are by Stampscapes.

Super duper page. Love the little treat at the end - the birdie peeking out.
Must check out PPA now I have some time. You are a good advert for them and I always want to go to their pages when I have visited you.
