Walt Disney

Last week was the last blog hop for eclecticPaperie.  I got into the art journaling scene because of them.  Even though there wasn't an album set up for others to share their takes on the challenge of using any Walt Disney quote, I'm sharing mine here with you now. 

Daisy is returning to Disney and is over the moon about her new position.  Sadly, eP will be closing unless she finds someone to take the reins from her.  The design team has had some really great ideas and I'll miss them collectively but will continue to follow them individually.

My page is rather simple.  I just randomly plopped my distress ink tool on the page and just kept filling up the white space.  Not particularly caring for the bright, garish colors, I wiped Picket Fence distress stain over the entire page.  That's much better!

Picket Fence distress stain was applied to an old clear set of alpha stamps from Rubber City River Works.  'Walt' 'Disney' was stamped on the upper and right hand sides of the page.  I drew around some of the letters in black.  Doodled around the blocks where they meet/overlap using various markers.  Don't know who makes the mouse foot prints that I stamped in Jet Black archival ink.  The stamp in the lower left hand corner was also stamped in JBai.  A white pen highlights the mug and sneakers.  An orange pen colors her hair; red on the lips.  I sketched a rectangle around the image and added 'm' to the four corners.  Studio 490 stamps (adventure, happiness) were stamped in distress ink.  My quote was written on a paint chip  in black and white permanent pens.

I think I might just continue this quote idea; could be fun way to try out new techniques or color combos.  And use some new stamps!


  1. Fun fun fun!!! Love the whole design...unique and just plain fun!!!

  2. I love this! I love the color, love the design, and love the story you put with it. Fun card!
