Hello hello! I am SO excited! I am a Guest Designer for the month of April over at Dreamweaver Stencils’ Dream it Up! blog. I am thrilled and honored to be a guest for such a wonderful company. I will have a new post each Thursday in April to share with you. Would you like to know the challenge? It’s Mists, Drizzles, and Rain…just perfect for April! Here’s what I made for Week 1.
I made an art journal page. Can you figure out what my page is about? My favorite move, The Crow! Have you seen it? It’s a gothic romance….and I l-o-v-e it! So. Allow me to explain my choices to you. The crow…pretty obvious, right? But! He’s on a weather vane, which is very significant to the end of the movie. ***Spoiler Alert!*** Eric Draven (the lead role) kills Top Dollar (Head Bad Guy) with a broken weather vane at the end of the movie. My sentiment is a line that is repeated throughout the movie. I won’t get into more detail about it…you’ll just have to go and see it for yourself! 🙂
Now, about how I made the page. I started off by using the Rain stencil with my Crayola (yes, Crayola) airbrush. I used a number of different colors to get a cool variegation. Then I took Dreamweavers’ Black Embossing Paste and applied it to the Raven stencil. I then applied some Metallic F/X to just the weather vane.
I misted a blue Memory Mist to the background of my page. Then, Pumice Stone Distress Ink to the foreground. I also used just the tip of the Butterfly in conjunction with some more of the Metallic F/X I used on the weather vane. Last, I stamped my quote using an alpha stamp set from Inkadinkado.

Cool journal page Alison! Love the crow perched on the weather vane.
