I then used my scissors and cut all around the images.



To create the background, You will need a watercolor paper scrap of paper that is 11inch X 3.25 inch. I used my Art by Marlene Watercolors and Brush to make few strokes of light blue and light green on the paper to create a sky and a ground.


I created few bricks with my white acrylic markers on the ground so it is not too empty on the bottom of my art journal page.

I then stacked my images starting with the adorable toucan, which I got from the recent release's paper elements booklet, and stacking houses behind him and moving up until they are all where I want them to be.


I started gluing the back most house with my ABM sticky glue and for the layer above it I backed with a single foam tape layer and then the front images with double layers of foam tape. This will give lovely variety of dimension on your page.


I choose couple more tiny elements from a previous peper elements booklet, a flower and few leaves, to decorate all around my houses.

Ifinished up by embillishing my art journal page with few enamel dosts.


I then punched a black cardstock paper with my ring-bound hole punch and cut it to 11 inch X 4.25 inch and glued my art journal page on top.
