I began in the Dina Wakley Media Journal with watercolors. First, I spritzed the pages with water, then dragged color across the page with a large brush. Sodalite Genuine on the bottom, and a mix of Phthalo Turquoise and Quinacridone Violet on top ( a bit of a Northern Lights appeal).
Then, I started with the Stamperia Arctic/Antarctic papers and chipboard. I stenciled on a compass rose and some designs from Stamperia's matching stencil.
I love all the papers in this set, and it was hard choosing which to use. The interactive bit happened all on its own, when the main piece didn't stick in place. As it popped back up, I thought, aha - make a flap! And, I had to make sure the constellation of the Southern Cross was on this star map - right behind the whale's tail.
I added in a mix of images to represent both the north and south poles - Polar bears in the Arctic and Penguins in the Antarctic. Aren't these images from Stamperia just gorgeous? A bit of stenciling, and chipboard, and it is done.
Arctic....Polar bears are such majestic animals (although I do not want to see one close up)
