another Art Journal Page

This week at Frilly and Funkie they have a photo inspiration seen here:
The colors reminded me of a die cut that's been in my stash waiting to be used. I added some color and shading to the die cut with Tim Holtz Distress pens and Faber Castell Pitt pens.  I colored a manilla tag with a few colors of TH Distress stains then laid a pattern on it using Balzar Designs stencils and TH Distress inks. After I pushed the ink through the chicken wire stencil, there was a lot of ink left on the stencil so I quick opened my art journal to a blank page and pressed the excess ink on to the page. WhhEEEEEE! LOVE! oh happy day - that came out cool! So I did the same thing with the herringbone stencil! I did some stamping with a Studio G stamp and black StazOn ink and laid down some KandCo rub-ons. A TH reinforcer, Kaiser craft pearl, and some ribbon from the stash and now, what was going to be a diecut on a tag, is a pretty journal page! I'll probably add some words to it when the right ones come along but for now I'm very happy with it!
If the photo or my project inspire a project for you - go create! Then link it up at Frilly and Funkie!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today
I'd love to hear what you think!

It's amazing how fast you can build up a page BG with all that excess ink, isn't it? Love your stencil choices and the way you've used up those goodies in making your new creation. Thanks for joining us again at Frilly & Funkie this week, Teresa!

Your BG looks fabulous, Teresa! Love the look of the reverse chicken wire stencil - the extra blue really gives your piece some pop. Your bird is absolutely gorgeous - so tropical looking and a perfect interpretation of the inspiration photo. Wonderful work - thanks so much for sharing it with us this week at Frilly and Funkie - it's great to have you back with us again this time around!
