Lyndsay's Stamp Stuff Week TWO

This was a really fun and easy scrapbook page!! Which was made much easier by the fact that I'm a guest designer for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff and I got to use this awesome stamp!!!

Go HERE to find this very stamptacular digital stamp! It is called Funky Tree #3.
The patterned papers are from Me & My Big Ideas. Now, I printed this image out pretty big because I wanted to write on the tree a little bit. As soon as I saw this image I thought of the funny story from my son Cameron. (If you can't read my handwriting in the journaling, I talk about how excited we were for Cam to go to summer school this year, and about the funniest story he came home with - the day he got TWO girlfriends ... and kissed them both!)
I colored the tree with my copics. I used E57 on the tree, then used E33 on the scratched out heart part, then used it to highlight. I used a number of colors on the leaf canopy. First I did a quick layer with YG23, then I did the little scribbly bunches of leaves with G94, G85, YG67, and G28. Then I did another fast layer with the YG23. Finally, I went over the entire thing with my blender pen to give it all a more ... used and realistic feel.
I used the camouflage print to accent the notebook paper style paper. I cut out the title (summer journey is what our school system calls summer school) with the Pooh Font on my Cricut. Then I used the Indie Art cartridge to cut out the skull/bones and the lippy kisses.
I edged everything on the page with a dark brown fluid chalk (from colorbox). And I used an acid free archival safe brown pen for my journaling.
I believe those are all the details. I go back and forth between elaborate scrapbooking and simple... but I thought this page just didn't need a zillion embellishments! Now, let me tell you some VERY important details about Lindsay's Stamp Stuff!

Great page, Diana. I love how you did the "leaves" on that tree. I never would have thought to do that, but now I will definitely have to try it!
