Art Journalling

The challenge in the OWSE group currently is to use masking on your project. Since I have recently started an art journal, I couldn't help but make a spread. I used paints for my background and it was so extremely bright and obnoxious, that I die-cut my birds and used them as masks and painted over the whole thing with gesso to tone it down. Got a wonderful result. Used a Crafty Companion stencil and made the trees and colored in with my Copics. Had to do a bit of free-nanding for more leaves and a few branches. Over-stamped in black Archival ink some Wendy and Tim verses and a few backgrounds in light colored Distress inks. Another template and white acryllic paint for the border at the top. I think it's done. What do you think?
