Mr. Pumpkin Scarecrow

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.
