Spring into Journaling!

The Digi Choosday Team is sharing their ideas on the theme:  Jump into Spring.  Of course, it's always Anything Goes for all of your entries; so come join us for a chance to win some Polkadoodles digis!  

The image of Winnie jumping Through the Looking Glass is just too perfect to convey my journal message of going from winter (the past) to spring (future)!  You can find this image and sentiment in the Winnie in Wonderland Collection.  

I started by printing the left side of the page with paper from Winnie Winterland Paper Heaven 1 and the right side with paper from Winnie in Wonderland Paper Heaven 6.  I then put my focal image on top of that and printed off the page.  

I went into Cricut Design Space to print/cut my sentiment and cut a mask of my focal image.  I placed the mask over the image and sponged ink over the the blue side and lightened the blues going into the floral side of the page.  

I then used Glass Bead Glitter Gel and a homemade snowflake stencil on the "winter" side of the page.  I removed the mask and Copic colored the image.  Next, I "colored over" all the shattered glass with a glue pen and let that dry.  Once the glue was dry, I placed a sheet of Deco Foil over it and rubbed it gently.  The foil sticks where the glue is!  

I finished it with a small bow at her waist, a gem on her flower, and the sentiment.
