Here's my journal page that combines Priscilla (Amy Wilson-Wellenstein) and the big bird from Birdy Bonnets (Kira Nichols).
Meanwhile, a piece of 140 lb. Mixed Media cardstock (Strathmore) was painted with Dark Grey Medium Value 3 Media Fluid Acrylic (MFA) paints (DecoArt). When the paint was dry, Medium Grey Value 6 MFA paint, mixed with Translucent White MFA paint, was sponged over the Stone Wall stencil (Green Pepper Press). English Red Oxide MFA paint, then Translucent White MFA paints were stippled over the stencil to make the stone look variegated. This panel was die-cut with one of the dies from the 5x7 Card Creator Nestabilities die set (Spellbinders), then edged with Jet Black StazOn ink (Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko).
Brown cardstock was trimmed, edged with Black Soot Distress ink (Ranger), and adhered to the base of the "stone" piece with dimensional foam adhesive.
Yellow, purple, and gold metallic cardstock were die-cut with the dies from Banner Basics set (Spellbinders), then the banner was assembled. It was adhered to the stone panel with dimensional foam adhesive. Purple and Blue Spica Glitter pens were used to add glittery highlights to the tassels and blue rhinestones were added to the points in the banner as well.
Now that I had a suitable setting for my bird-headed jester, comprised of Priscilla and the bird from Birdy Bonnets, he was adhered to the card front using slightly thinner dimensional foam adhesive. I tried to add rub-on and die-cut letters to half-pearls, but I couldn't get 'em to stick. Then I had a "Eureeka!" moment and remembered that I had three sets of alphabet beads from forever ago. Oddly one set of the beads was missing the letter "t" and another set had only had two "e"s. So I combined the sets and adhered them in a loose arc above the bird-headed jester to look as though he were juggling.
I matted the "stone" front onto blue and black cardstock to add a bit of heft to it.
