Mr. Pumpkin Scarecrow

Vanaf deze post kun je de Nederlandse vertaling vinden onder de tab Nederlandse versie.

Inspired by the pumpkins on a Fall Art Journal page by Vicky Papaioannou and an awesome digital image by Mariola Budek I finally made my first Art Journal page ever.
I kept everything calm and it is more a scene page than a mixed media page but it is completely the page that I had in mind.
I started with cutting a page out of my journal I did that because this was my first time working in this journal, I didn’t know how my pencil blending would be on this paper and I wasn’t sure what I wanted with the image.
After colouring the image, colouring and blending colours wasn’t hard on this paper, I decided that I would fussy cut my image.
Using the head of the scarecrow as a guide I draw 2 pumpkins and colour them as well with my pencils.
I blended my background with different colours of Distress Oxide Ink, keeping in mind that I wanted to put my scarecrow in a “cornfield” and on the other page I wanted to put a fence.
Used water mixed with Distress Oxideds to splatter on the foreground.
I decided that I wanted to have a crow on the fence, so I mirrored and printed one of the  crows from the image, the same with some rocks that I needed for the front of my background.
Using design paper, ink ( to make the paper colours fit more)  and a cutting die I made my “cornfield”.
Into the green on the left page I added more yellow and red and stamped with a branch stamp to create a tree look to make the corner on the left page more interesting. See the close up photo.
I then put some Distress Oxide Walnut Stain in my TH woodgrain embossingfolder, this ink is great for this technique, and with coloured cardstock I run it trough my die cutting machine. After that I put Distress Oxide Vintage Photo on top of it and let that dry. From this piece I made my fence. The nails I made by hammer some silver brads with my TH Texture Hammer and after that I put TH Alcohol Ink Mixative Copper on top of them. I also put some the ink on one of the “legs” of a brad that I wanted to use as a headless nail. This I used in the pole where the wooden plank “came off”.
I put everything on my pages using Tacky glue, 0,5 mm., 1 mm and 2 mm. foam tape to create dimension on the page.
I finished the foreground by stamping on some places and by adding on some of the rocks Glossy Accents, this is what I also used for the eyes of the crows.

Trouwkaart/Wedding card

No Christmas card for World Card Making day, but a Wedding card for a lovely couple their wedding day.
I love to work white on white by using different kind of papers.
For example, by this card I used a metallic white carstock, a glitter white cardstock and a cardstock  with texture. And vellum inside with a text on it (not shown).
Original the Love birds have a heart in the middle of the ribbon that they hold, I replaced that for 2 rings, which are stickers. I sticked 2 stickers (each sticker consists 2 rings) to each other so I have golden rings on the front and backside and the ribbon in between those two.
Unfortunately the embossed stamp on the bottom side of the card is not shown well in the photo.
You can find the use materials under the image.

Geen Kerstkaart voor World Card Making day maar een trouwkaart voor een lief stel hun trouwdag.
Ik hou van wit op wit werken door verschillende soorten papier te gebruiken.
Voor deze kaart bijvoorbeeld, heb ik een metallic karton, een glitter papier en een karton met textuur gebruikt. En vellum aan de binnenzijde met een tekst erop ( niet getoond).
Origineel hebben de Love birds een hart in het midden van het lint wat ze vasthouden, deze heb ik vervangen voor 2 ringen, dit zijn stickers. Ik heb 2 stickers ( elke sticker bestaat uit 2 ringen) tegen elkaar geplakt zodat ik aan de voor- en achterzijde gouden ringen heb en het lint zit er tussen.
Helaas zie je de ge-emboste stempel aan de onderkant van de kaart niet goed op de foto.
