I've Got Wings - Journal Page

Happy Wednesday Everyone, hopefully your work week has been smooth and your happily on your way to the weekend! 
Today is also my day to post over at the
Stampotique Designers Blog - and there are also some wonderful other designers who post on a daily basis and they all give such great inspiration
Today there is an awesome new challenge over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge Blog .. the wonderful and talented Arwen is asking us to use some "wings" in our projects this week. 

I'm super excited about this challenge because I love just about everything with wings. 
I wanted to create something in my smaller  3 1/2 x 5 art journal today so I am using a wonderful stamp by Daniel Torrent called
I love this stamp, it's so versatile and can be used in so many great creations. 

For my page, I made my own stencil with a bunch of circles and used archival inks to create my background. I then used a few more stencils to layer on my background here

I really like the uneven circles in the stencil, it seems like nothing I ever do is perfectly cemetery so I love that it's all goofy looking 

I then stamped Daniel's Tree Topper onto another sheet of paper and colored him with my copic markers
I cut him out and glued him onto my page
I drew the word "fly" myself and also colored that with copics and backed it with black card stock
I added some white gel pen doodling around the hearts

Thanks again for spending some time with me and if you haven't tried your hand at making your own stencil, you should really give it a go. It's something I will definitely be doing again

  4. You're certainly right, Claudine! Daniel's Tree Topper isn't just for Christmas! He works beautifully here in your journal. Sweet background and color palette, too! Mwah! KayW
