This weeks challenge at OCC is all about green and Spring.
My project has a double meaning today. The frogs are returning to our outside pond and I hear the males at night croaking their love songs trying to attract the females. And when go out to feed the Shebukin fish (like giant goldfish, but smaller than Koi) they LEAP off the rocks around the edge of the pond into the pond.
In addition, this is the final page in my "original" art journal. It is time for me to LEAP into a real designated journal and continue to spread my wings even further.
For this final page, I used a page from an old dictionary and used mini misters with CTMH Create A Shade Pearl paint and CTMH re-inkers in Sweet Leaf, Garden Green and Topiary and sprayed the page. Then I used (retired) CTMH Frogs and Friends stamp set and stamped three frogs in the same colors I used on the dictionary page, fussy cut them out and applied some Stickles and a Googly eye to each. Hand doodled the word leap and used my black Faber Castell and Sharpie White Paint pen to color it in. Once I applied the frogs, I outlined them with my Faber Castell pen to make them pop off the page a bit more.
