How high does the sycamore grow

My quote for this week was “How high does the sycamore grow” from the song ‘Colors of the wind’ from the movie Pocahontas.


For my background I used Fireworks Spray from Imagine craft, I used three different colors and used a water sprayer to blend all the colors together. The background is amazingly sparkly and its a shame that my pictures don’t show that. I used a flower stamp from a dylusions flower stamp set using a crystal craft ink pad in black. I also got a new french botanical script stamp so used that on the background too with the same ink pad. On the background of my quote page I stamped down some trees and butterflies and some of the script as well.

For my main page I decided to draw a tree. I drew a tree on watercolor paper and outlined it with a graphix black pen. I used my dylusions color sprays as paint instead of spraying it, painting it down into sections with a paintbrush, like the rainbow. I was initially going to leave my tree like that but remembered I had colored skeleton leaves and used them, laying them all over the tree. I then used my butterfly paper cutter to cut small butterflies out of different colors of scrapbook paper  and covered my tree’s leaves and background with them.


For my quote page I used watercolor paper as the main background to my quote. I used three different colors of distress pad inks and tapped the ink pads onto a clear stamp block and then sprayed them with water, I then put the watercolor paper over it to create a distress ink watercolor. I then used my new chronology urban stamp of butterflies with my black ink to cover the background of my quote with it. For my quote words I colored a piece of watercolor paper in pink watercolor from my aqua spectrum pens and then stamped on the words with my dovecraft letters using black ink and then cut out  the words individually. I glued the words on the background and then outlined them all with graphix black pen. As my page was about a tree I drew three maple leaves, I colored them with dylusions, using the dylusions sprays as paints and then used my urban butterfly stamp with white ink and stamped them over each leaf, then outlining them with graphic black pen. I then positioned them overlapping and put them next to my quote. For the finishing touch I cut more butterflies out of my scrapbook paper and put them all over the page.
