The Children's Garden


Today I am back with an Art Journal Journey spread honoring Yvonne from Meggy's Way's theme which is A World of Fantasy.

I call this one The Children's Garden.

Here are a few closeups.










For this entry, I started with a napkin I fused to freezer paper awhile back.  I sewed the napkin assembly to a sheet of 110 lb card stock which was shorter than the napkin.  Because I used freezer paper, the napkin lost its transparency.  That's when I decided to add the TH children and dog dolls.  I positioned them on the fantasy flowers using pop dots.  Then I wrote the title using a white gel pen.

Because both Susi and Yvonne asked, I am also adding this entry to Try it on Tuesday with their Childhood theme.

Thank you for visiting.  The incredibly loyal Bleubeard and I are delighted you chose to spend some time here today and hope to also see you at Art Journal Journey AND Try it on Tuesday.

I think you made a really smart move putting this napkin on freezer paper. It makes it look like a chalkboard, and those white flowers look like chalk. That makes a really cool page. And clever. Although I think most schools have whiteboards now, for some reason I think chalk board and kids. Nice work my friend! Happy Thursday. Hugs-Erika

I Love this page, it is a fabulous napkin background, I thought you had painted it when I first looked. The sewing is a super way to frame the page, the TH children and dog are fantastic additions. They look comfortable and happy to be in their garden
I hope you will add this to TioT' s as well Elizabeth it is a wonderful page for both the themes.

Fun fantasy page. I love the kids sitting on top of the flowers. Makes me think of the animals on a spring you sometimes see at play parks.

So appealing! It fits the theme perfectly, and there is so much to look at. Well done.

Jeanie said...

I love how you interpreted this in black and white instead of going all out with color. With the b/w, much as with photography, you see details I think would get lost in a mass of yellows and blues. The children stand out so well. It has a wonderful feeling, very sweet but not cloying, magical but not twee. This is really lovely -- all the elements work so well together.

If I had got here earlier I would have suggested it for TIOT too! Yesterday was a bit of a whirlwind day and today hasn't been much better!!! However I love this so much (having caught a glimpse in my sidebar) and I thank you so much for linking to TIOT! It really is a striking page! Hugs, Chrisx

OMGosh, this is fabulous, Elizabeth! Do all children dream of being in a huge flower garden like this? One of my favorite childhood Golden books was Thumbelina. Your little girl reminds me of her - the way the flower above sort of makes her cap.
