Journal Journeys Challenge 17

On Journal Journeys this month, Dawn set us the challenge of making a journal page around the word animals and there had to be at least 2 different kinds of animal on the page.

Now I'm not doing so great at the moment and its taken me all month to get my backside in gear to make the page.  I decided at the start of the month what I was gonna do but its taken me this long to do it!  

I started off by using Glimmer Mists to create the background.  I used Key Lime Pie, Jazz Blue, Daffodil, Deep Plum and then sprayed the whole page with Pearl cos I thought it wasn't 'glimmery' enough!!  Its the first time in ages I've used my mists and I really enjoyed it.

I then stamped Anthromorphic Animals from Lost Coast Designs onto white card with black versafine, coloured them with ColourSoft Pencils and cut them out.

I absolutely *love* these stamps!!! They're lovely stamped just in black or sepia, but once they're coloured, they really come to life!

I stamped the words using some quirky alphabets mainly to remind me of the word 'anthromorphic'.  Its one of those words that I can never remember.  When I looked it up I found this on Wikipedia.  I can't think of a better way to explain what it means!!

After I stamped the words I realised these were too far down the page so I filled the space up with some cat stamps from Kanban (I think).  There are 2 plates and there is a tree to stamp which you can stamp the tiny cats onto.  Because they're in various different poses it looks amazing when its done.  An animal page just wouldn't be complete for me without a cat or 21 :-D

So here is my finished page just in time for the March challenge!

Thanks for organising this again Dawn!
