Crafting When We Can Challenges #13 - Animals

This week over at Crafting When We Can Challenges the theme is Animals, any type of animal and any type of project.

Our wonderful Sponsor is
Hop over and see the wonderful images Tracey has on offer.

Below is my first try at a journal page, my Bestie, who is a big journal fan has been trying to explain to me the concept behind journalling.  I still don't really understand it or see the point of it, I don't like getting messy and putting layers of things, paint/paper over layers of other paint/paper just doesn't do it for me but having talked about it I thought I would give it a go. So here is my first journal page.  My daughter did a random number and the image below is the one that was picked, as soon as I saw it I knew the sort of thing I wanted to do with it.

I used various shades of DI to colour the page, I wanted to make it woody (I may go back and try and make the background look more bark like at a later date).  I then coloured 2 images so I could 3D some of the pieces.  I used Copics, Promarkers and DI as paint.  I thank used a gold marker, which didn't really show up so I highlighted the word Family with black and white markers and then wrote  & Friends and highlighted these too.
