2014 Journal52 - Week 26 - Under the Sea

I had a lot of fun making this scene for week 26 in Journal52. The prompt was "Under the Sea". I used a page in a tall journal that had been gessoed and had leftover acrylic paint on it. It seemed very suitable for water so I used that page.
I drew the fish and coloured them with pencil crayons and then cut them out and glued them to the page. I drew, coloured and cut out the anchor and the rocks the same way. I used some deli paper that I had painted for the tall grasses, cutting it in long, thin strips. I drew and stamped some underwater greenery on the background. I added some bubbles with a white gel pen.
I wonder what those fish are thinking? *LOL*
I hope you have this much fun with your next page. :D

2014 Journal52 - Week 25 - Nature

The prompt for week 25 in Journal52 was "Nature". I did a collage for this page. The background paper was recycled from paper that was wrapped around some flowers that I had received. The frame and banners were cut from patterned paper. The flowers were drawn on scrap paper and book pages and then coloured with watercolour crayons and cut out and collaged onto the background. The bugs were stamped and cut out and added to the scene. Then I added some texture stamping with silver metallic ink. Thanks for looking.
Take care! :D
