Fun Day at the Zoo

Hey everyone. I have my take on Sketchabilities' September sketch to share with you today. For my daughter's birthday this year, her boyfriend surprised her with a road trip to the Moncton zoo. She was so excited and got to finally meet a llama. I had trouble narrowing down the pictures to three, so I decided to use all five. I love how the background turned out on this page. I used Vicki Boutin's art crayons and had to mix them to achieve the color I was looking for. I first applied them with the packaging technique. Once dry I added more through a stencil, with a stencil brush. Finally I stamped some on, using stamps from Vicki Boutin. The title, small leaf borders and the two monkeys were fussy cut from journal cards. I used Photo Play Paper's 'We Bought a Zoo' collection. It was perfect!! Make sure to check out the Sketchabilities blog for a ton of inspiration and how to play along. Below are some close ups and the sketch. Thanks for stopping by.
