First Art Journal Page

Happy May!! Hope it's a sunny day for you! It's been raining here all week long, and pretty chilly too. Hoping next week will be better. 

My 7 year old was busy yesterday drawing/coloring characters from her currently favorite movie "Frozen". I really liked how they both turned out and asked her if I could turn them into an art journal page. I have never made one before and thought these colorings would be perfect for one. 
She agreed and that is what I did today.
I used several patterned papers for the background. Glued them onto the mixed media card stock using mod podge. I painted a little bit of gesso onto the papers. Olaf and Elsa (the two characters my daughter drew and colored) were cut out and glued onto the papers using mod podge. I printed out the verse (from the Movie Soundtrack) and added it too. I also used a stencils with some dylusions inks for a little extra texture. Added the snowflakes (whimsy stamps snowflakes trio die) and then painted another layer of mod podge over the whole page, and sprinkled with glitter.

Thanks for stopping by!
