Born To Fly... 32

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, April 27, 2013 @ 4:25 PM | , , , , , ,

Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! When I was at the craft store the other day, I spotted a super McCall's cute owl pattern that was just asking for me to take her home ;) This was one of those items that I was just dying to play with and couldn't resist any longer! So I pulled out lots of supplies including my smaller art journal and this is what I created: 
Before I could make her, I first created my own colorful paper:
There are lots of layers of various products on this page. The background was collaged using pieces from all the papers shown above and so is my girl. To create her eyes and the circles on the page, I used dies from both Die-namics Circles STAX Set 1 and 2 to die cut book page paper.
The random text was stamped using the text image from MFT DC First Class Friend and the Born To Fly sentiment and die cut is from Die-namics Airplane Greetings Die & Stamp Set.
I embarrassingly purchased the Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate (shown below) back in December from a local stamping store and just pulled it out several days ago! YIKES! I don't know what I was thinking!!! Oh my gosh ~ the paper that you can create with this along with any of your favorite stencils, stamps, paints, sprays, etc... is limitless and SUPER easy!
For color inspiration, I joined along with the colourQ Challenge
Thank you very much for visting ~ I hope you have an awesome weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
