Fun on the Farm


 Hello Monday my friends! And welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Thank you for joining us for the  Shake It Up Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is: 4 Legged Animals 

I've headed to the farm this week looking for some 4 legged friends...cows, horses, pigs, sheep and dogs to name a few. One of the most memorable family vacations when I was a girl was a week we spent on a farm. I remember exploring the barns, petting the animals, "driving" a tractor, and even finding an old school bus to play in. The farm family made us feel right at home!


I began by stamping several of Tim Holtz'x Funny Farm animals on a tag, then coloring them with his watercolor pencils.

I glued the tag on one page in my art journal.

Next, I dabbed in black to cover the words and a bit more, then added some red paint.

Once the paint dried, I added in bits of the Fun on the Farm papers by Echo Park.

Blended in some more paint colors...

Then, blended in more layers of color, wiping back a few times to try to leave some of the papers showing. I smudged white on tope and blended again, then added a couple of layers of stenciling with black and yellow. I added the tag, and a few more words and numbers. Then, I used Scribble Sticks to go around my main images.

Lots of details.....

Here's to some fun memories on the farm!
