Different is Good!

 Hello my friends, welcome to my blog and a brandnew challenge over at Country View Challenges!

This month the lovely Jane is hosting the challenge and she wants us to make "Anything but a card".

For my first project I decided to make an art journal page.

I wanted to use my new Tim Holtz stencil and the ricepaper I purchased from Marta Lapkowska.

I started with some washi tapes and the rice paper I tore in pieces and glued down with matte medium. After this I painted the whole surface with a thin layer of white Gesso. Then I took the Deco Arch Layering Stenicil from Tim Holtz and spreat some modeling paste through it - I LOVE how the pattern looks!

To color the pages I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists in green, brown, beige and black. On the dry page I painted some gold. I used the DecoArt Extreme Sheen 24k Gold metallic acrylic paint. This is such a gorgeous gold paint! You find it in the shop if you are interested.

While waiting for everything to dry, I drew some mushrooms on watercolor paper and painted them with the the Glimmermists from the background, except the toadstool. For his red head I used red acrylic paint. I fuzzy cut them and glued them on my pages. I outlined the mushrooms with a black stabilo All and activated it with water. Then I set some highlights with a white Posca Pen. At last I glued down some moss to ground the mushrooms.

I only had to glue down the sentiment and surround the pages with a black crayon to frame the pages.

Here are some close ups:

That´s it for today, I hope you´ll find time to play with us at Country View Challenges! As always you can win a 20 £ voucher for the shop!
