March journal pages.

 My theme for this months page came about because it is World Book Day today.  The Gruffalo is a firm favourite with both my Grandsons and my children in class.
After applying gesso to the pages I then rubbed turquoise and green paint onto top.  A darker green was then sponged through one of my stencils before applying the images of the Gruffalo and mouse cut out from a paper napkin.  It is so lucky that I am a hoarder, because  I had a footprint stamp that Kezzy had when she was a little girl, which I used to stamp over the letters.  (It had come with a Barbie art set when she was about 6).  Back to journalling on plain squares this month. 
I have kept my journal up to date as you can see.  Click on the link here to see the work of other journallers taking part in this challenge.

The Gruffalo made me smile -- so great that everything we keep makes an appearance at some stage ;-)

Your "gruffalo"? brought an immediate smile to my face. Until just a few seconds ago, I was unacquainted with gruffalos...seems like a should know more about them. The whimsy in your page is delicious.
