Happy Friday everyone! Today I have a journal page to show you.
And since it is Friday it is time to party over at Paint Party Friday.
Thanks to Kristen and Eva for hosting.
I am also linking up my page to Art Journal Journey. This month's theme is Into the Woods, and it is being hosted by Chris from Pear Shaped Crafting.
So my take on into the woods for this page is camping.
I began to stamping some bears, foxes and wolves on some green paper. Then I stenciled with paint this forest scene. You can see one wolf face and some of the shadowy bodies behind the trees. Then I added the tent, campfire and foxes, and painted the big full moon. I doodled in the screaming lady in the tent. I also used a little white watered down paint around the tent to try to make that flashlight glow you get a night in a tent, but it kind of came out a little more smudgy than I wanted it to.
Oh well. Sometimes journal pages end up a little bit messy.
This page is bases on one of my real life camping experiences with a couple of crazy raccoons, not foxes.
A few summers ago I went camping with a 3 girlfriends in the White Mountains in the north of my state for a couple of nights. We set up 2 tents with 2 of us in each tent. On our last night it started pouring rain, and so we put out our campfire and crawled into our sleeping bags in our tents early. My friend and I had just fallen asleep in our tent when two raccoons tried to come in. One of them had his face pressed into the canvas side of the tent and we could see its outline pressing inward, kind of like a raccoon face mask. They were making all their little high pitched raccoon laughs and noises and the other raccoon was trying to open the tent's zipper.
Of course we screamed, and my friend took her hand and hit the raccoon who was pushing his face in the side of the tent. She literally grabbed the raccoon by the nose (with the side of the tent in between her hand and the raccoon). Of course all screaming woke up our friends in the other tent, and they started calling to us to see what was up, and that scared off the raccoons.
Talk about wildlife coming out of the forest after dark.
So I am the screaming doodle in my page.
So its not only Paint Party Friday today but it is my birthday. The hubby has kidney dialysis tonight so my daughter is taking me out for a pedicure to celebrate. I'm hoping she'll take me out for dinner too. And since the hubby isn't home tonight, I get to celebrate all over again tomorrow with him.
I like that! Think I'll make this a birthday weekend.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you get to do something that makes you happy this weekend.
