I am sharing my first art journal page I have made for Art Journal Friday challenge over at The Scrappy Tree ning site.
On the last Friday of every month Gayle posts a journal prompt to encourage you to get your pens, paints, paper, glue, plus anything and everything you can lay hands on(!) and to have a play.
This month's journal prompt is to pick a book, a character or a place that really struck you and journal about it. You could pick a favourite book and journal maybe about the things you enjoy about it and the feelings it gives you, or perhaps a book you only read once but which created particularly vivid thoughts or images for you that you still remember.
I picked a children's book called The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson.. it's a bedtime favourite of my little boys....
"A mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood. The fox saw the mouse and the mouse looked good."
Walk further into the deep dark wood, and discover what happens when the quick-thinking mouse comes face to face with an owl, a snake and a hungry gruffalo... brilliant!
Oooooooooo this page was soooooooo much fun to make! Thanks Gayle for a fabulous challenge! xx
The Tree stamp from Stampotique Orignals added to the perfect setting for my gruffalo along with Hopscotch
Thank you for calling & leaving a comment if you get the chance.
