LOC #27 = Favorite Books

There's another brand new challenge over at the Left of Center Challenges blog today, the theme is 'Favorite Books'.  Our wonderful sponsor this time around is Delicious Doodles.  I decided to do a journal page for this one.

Once it popped into my head what I wanted to do I went to figure out which journal I wanted to play in. the very first one I went to I found an older Poe project which you can see here.  And just by a happy chance the neighboring page was blank. Of course now that I'm typing I realize I didn't take a full picture of both pages together, ug.(will have to do that once there is enough sunlight to take a good picture) Anyway I used the same watercolor crayons to make the background similar to the first page. I have a tree stencil that I sprayed with ink and carefully put down on the page but it was still wet from the water color crayons that it just kind of blobbed everywhere. So I blotted with a paper towel. It doesn't look like I first envisioned but I think that it turned out pretty cool. The fabulous Raven image from Delicious Doodles really didn't need much coloring done. I lightly filled in some areas with colored pencils (lilac and silver). Then cut it out to add to my page.  The title I stamped with some older alpha stamps from CTMH. Then I added some random dots over both pages with metallic sharpies and a white paint pen.
What are you waiting for, create a project of your favorite book or story and join in the fun at LOC. We are still celebrating our first anniversary too so we have an 'Anything Goes' challenge happening all month long. Plus we have a new FB page we would love to see you there!
