Fun Friday with Pam

In the spirit of this month....I will be 'Counting Crows'.
This project began when I first read the poem. In order to make a book to illustrate, I needed some....Crows, or Ravens if you will. Page 4 just happens to be the page I started on. I think because it is the center fold and the back was dry. This is going to be a fun project, check back next week for more!
See the 'die' and some more ideas at the bottom of this post. First I cut the Raven's from several layers of tissue. Next I sprayed them with a solid black mist. You can see that right now there are some solid, and some 'pied'
Being well enough satisfied with the look overall, I moved on to the journal pages while they dried. NOTE: Often I will spray over the images on white art paper. The shadow figures will find their way into another project, I am sure.
This book will be a total so far of 7 double sided pages. The first thing I did was create a moon effect for each page. I will make a separate post about that in the near future. Then I did the lettering in a resist type product, so it will stay in tact under all the layers.
In order to make a wood like background, loose pallet effect, I got out the pastels. Keeping with what was to look like boards, I scribbled in various shades of brown, keeping the strokes vertical to the page.
Then I went in with TH picket fence and blended it all together.
For a plank visual, I used a ruler to draw lines and simply dotted in nail heads with a felt tip marker.
The trees are just scribble type with markers and pencil. This is the page so far, there is a space for some personal journaling. I may add some stamped images as well. Check back for the 'moon' process photos.

I am always playing around with old torn book images. This one will be another starting point for more art journal pages. I thought it looks interesting with text behind the cut out....Hmmm always plotting the next page!

This is the die I used for the Ravens/Crows
Just received it in my latest order from

Fun Friday with Pam

A tiny Shadow box. Made with Graphic-45 'Master Detective' paper pack. This little wooden box is only about 5 inches wide and 7 inches tall. I did a lot of fussy cutting. Inked all the edges. Added some glitter to the skulls on the sign on top.

Hope you all have something to be thankful for this weekend. Enjoy your family gathering. Here is an idea to scrapbook about later: Have each family member write down one thing they are thankful for. Decorate a jar and fill it  with all the quips and quotes, save and add to it every year or gathering! You can read them aloud before dinner, or after dinner!

In the mean time...
Thanksgiving observations:
Today, I am thankful for Pinterest
