I did however love the left side circles. With the pink background it sort of looked like balloons in a pink sky. I loved that and wanted to keep that side. Now what....
Sky = tree scene...so now the tree idea. So I cut out a "fluff" for the tree and adhered it. Then I used a brown ink spot to just spread into a trunk. I cut some branches and put them in the tree...hated it! So then I decided to use punched hearts for the "leaves". I grabbed my green scraps and punched away. I glued the hearts within the tree. Then I painted a watered down green acrylic paint wash over them. Used a baby wipe to remove some of the paint to show the patterned paper. Charcoal pencil for shading everything!
Then I grabbed some small stamps and started randomly stamping shapes as flowers on the bottom. Used a doily as a stencil and randomly painted white acrylic. I added some teal ink right above the "grass area" to add some blue to the sky because before that it was all pink. I added the K+D in the heart on the tree trunk - FUN!
After all that, I decided it needed something on the left side. I added the house. The base is an old book page; roof is scrap paper and the red door. Again, used charcoal pencil to shade. I want to add a quote but I'm not sure what yet. Oh, before I forget...I put the moustache down at the same time of the tickets. I thought it adds a little humor and kept it there!
