Nature Art Journal Page

It had been a while since I had made a page for my Junk and disorderly art journal by IndigoBlu for The Fruit Pixie. So for this weeks blog post for the shop I decided to work on a page using the Craft Consortium decoupage papers and stamps.  Here is what I came up with.
I began by sticking a piece of the Craft Consortium silver snowflakes decoupage papers to a white page.
I then added some cosmic shimmer paint around the edges to give a sort of frame look.
Using the Craft Consortium Winter Woodland stamp set I stamped and heat embossed the fawn, squirrel and hedgehog along with a forest full of toadstools. I coloured them in using the Ranger Distress pens. Then cut them all out.
I then used the acorn bough stamp, which I stamped in brown distress ink around the page and then added some colour with pastel pencils which I smudged to give a soft look.
I also stamped the toadstool stamp several times on the forest floor.
Using my Ranger distress crayons I made the frame more pronounced around the edge of the page
It needed something else in the trees, so I stamped and heat embossed the pine cone stamp several times, coloured them and cut them out. Then stuck them in the trees.

Then I arranged all the animals and toadstools in the woodland and when I was happy with how they looked I stuck them down.

I found a quote I liked and wrote it on my page.

You can never have too much snow so I added some snowflake die cuts and some dots of white acrylic ink. I also ran the white acrylic ink around the frame to finish it off.

Although this page looks detailed it really is very easy to put together.

You can find the art journal I am working in in the Fruit Pixie shop here -
