Paperartsy - Pink and Orange

The Paperartsy challenges started again nearly two weeks ago (last date to enter is tomorrow) with a topic of Pink and Orange and ever since I have been meaning to get something made to enter... Funnily enough, the day before the challenge opened I had started working on a journal page using one of Lin's new stencils

I have finally finished it! I loved how Wendy used the monsters for her pocket letters   and decided to incorporate them
This is what I've done
I started with painting the page with Sherbert, and stencilled Bougainvillea through the fantastic new Lin Brown stencil - deciding to use them as hanging rather than climbing flowers!

 I have no other step by step photos...
I stamped a border of Elena's flowers across the bottom of the page, and coloured them with Frescos and also some fine nibbed Stabillo felt tips

I stamped one of the flower houses on white card and coloured it in Bougainvillea and Coral, and stamped a whole heap of the bird monsters and painted them too..

 added one of Elena's flower sayings and edged it in Bougainvillea
Had a heap of fun with this, and am entering the Paperartsy challenge here

It's been a while since I had cause to come here... Glad I didn't miss this fun spread, the Zinskys are always funny whatever scenes they found themselves in!

You sure like those bird monsters, don't you? This is a really cute and clever entry. I love the little birds at the bottom of the flowers, too. This is one of those spreads you find new things each time you look at it.
