Today Is Magical

Hello, my dear stampahiolics!
I hope you're having a wonderful day!
I have an art journal page to share with you today,
using two Viva Las Vegastamps, Pan Pastels, and of course,
I hope you like it!
Want to make it?
Alllllrighty, then!
What you'll need:
Book to work in (mine is watercolor paper)
Pan Pastels (or other soft pastels)
Permenant inks- brown & black
Spray sealer (I use Krylon)
Tree stencil
Scraps of white card stock
Scrap of colored card stock
Die cutter
(or, alternatively, you can use a stamped sentiment)
Stuff to color with (I used markers)
Create your background using the pastels.
I started with the grassy area and used three greens.
Start with the lightest color first, and work your way to
the darkest color.
Once the grass is laid in, start on the sky. I used three blues.
Once all the color is on, blend it.
Spray with sealer.

Add the trees using a stencil and brown pastel.
When you life of the stencil. lightly swipe over the page with
a cloth or paper towel, to seoften the edges.
Spray with sealer.
Now start stamping the flowers across the bottom of the page.
I stamped some in brown and some in black.
Color as desired.
(I used a white gel pen on some of them)
Now, get that white card stock out and stamp some flowers and a fairy.
Trim closely and stick the images onto the Miracle Tape sheet.
Color as desired and cut out.
I cut the flowers and just used parts of them.
Remove the liner from the Miracle Tape and place the
fairy on the page. Add the flowers in front of and around her.
Cut out or stamp your sentiment and add to the page.
Scribble Stickles around the words,
and use your finger to tap the Stickles around and up the page.
I also added black Stickles to my words.
Set aside to dry, and you're done!

And, here's your wiener!
