Here's my journal page with The Tweedles (Janet Klein), Chessy (Janet Klein), Symphony Scroll (Jo Capper-Sandon), and The Raven and Chick (Kira Nichols).
Chessy was stamped with Desert Sand Memento ink, his head was colored with Copic markers, fussy-cut, and set aside to join The Tweedles, who played soccer/football with him, or his head to be more precise.
Whereas I know that crows and ravens are different birds, albeit it the same family (Corvidae), The Raven served as the crow for my purposes. The Raven was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Crafts), colored with Copic markers, fussy-cut, and edged with black marker. The Raven was set aside to join the others in their spirited game, while I created a suitable background for my characters.
Cerulean Blue and Translucent White Media Fluid Acrylic (MFA) paints (DecoArt) were sponged over a journal page. Pthalo Green-Yellow MFA paint was sponged over a torn strip 140 lb. Mixed Media cardstock (Strathmore), which was adhered to the base of the page for grass.
Pthalo Green-Yellow, Green Gold, Viridian, Pthalo Green-Blue, and Hansa Yellow Light MFA paints were sponged and pounced onto 140 lb. Mixed Media cardstock and heat set. When the paint was dry, Symphony Scroll was stamped twice with Celestial Copper Delicata ink from the Delicata Metallic Quartet set(Imagine Crafts) and heat set with Filigree Clear Detail Embossing powder (Stewart Superior). I cut loosely around the Symphony Scroll and edged them with green ink.
Burnt Umber, Raw Umber, Sienna, and Titan Buff MFA paint were sponged onto 140 lb. Mixed Media cardstock scraps. When the paint dried, Distress Crazing Medium (Ranger) was applied onto the painted strips using my finger, and allowed to dry. When the strips were dried, Walnut Stain Distress ink was sponged overtop to bring out the crazed texture even more. Tree trunk looking shapes were sketched on the reverse, fussy-cut, then edged with black pen.
The poem, which I found unattributed on the 'net was computer generated and printed onto text paper with my laser printer. It was aged with Aged Paper, Antique Linen, and Tea Dye Distress inks (Ranger).
The scene was put together and I called it done!
