Woodland Creatures Upcycle-A Peek-a-Boo Project

 About a year ago I did Autumnal Animals Assemblage Blogpost and this is closely related to that offering. I grew up in a frugal home and we were taught "waste not, want not" and most things probably could be used again. Many of the Pictorial Papers I used in my hand-bound art journals come with sets of stickers I rarely know how to use, as is the case with Graphic 45 Woodland Friends Collection Pack. These are the inspiration for this artwork.

1.  Gather Supplies. I am Using "Free" Sticker Sheets that Came with Graphic 45 Woodland Friends Collection Pack, and Stamperia Spring Botanic Cardstock as It is Back Portion of Cover Sheet Both  Are not Useful in my Hand-Bound Art Journals.

2.  Cut out Strips of Stamperia Spring Botanic Cardstock,  They will Become the Back of the GSLC Small Tags Set.

3.  Glue on Using a UHU Gluestick and Rubbing with Deli Paper, Allowing to Dry Fully.

4.  Choose Stickers from the Sheets that Came with Graphic 45 Woodland Friends Collection Pack.

5.  Make Miniature Collages on Front of Each GSLC Small Tags Set.

6.  Once Fully Dry Spritz With Water From a Spray Bottle Before Using Tim Holtz Lumber Embossing Folder in  Your Sizzix Big Shot.

7.  Once the Wood Grain is to Your Liking Use a Variety of Ink Pads to Add Patina and Interest to Your GSLC Small Tags Set.

8.  Add Further Patina and Texture Using  Folk Art Painted Finishes Moss and Rust and a Thin Plastic Spatula.

9.  Allow to Dry Fully, Then Seal Everything in With Matte Varnish.

Some Final Thoughts.

Woodland Animals-Meish Goldish

Woodland animals live in the woods, with plenty of trees in their neighborhoods. The chipmunk, opossum, squirrel and raccoon, roam the woods all night and noon. The bear and fox, deer and moose, all woodland creatures on the loose. Near shore and Ponds, and in the water are the beavers, muskrats, and otter. Woodland Animals are up in the tree, Owls and birds you're sure to see. Woodland animals like their view, as a woodland creature, wouldn't you?
