New MMA Art Journing Page.

This is the new page that I have gotten done.  Yippie..  I am way behind, you see what I do is toss all the stuff in a small tub.. In this case one with my sons name on it. I have 4 tubs going on at the moment, each person has their name on it... and so I don't misplace things they go right in the tub till I can get to them at a later date. Im good at misplacing things.  This tub is getting full so I thought I better get on it.  So here is a few photos of it and the  how to's.           
 I found paper that I though matched  the best.  The photos I but out and clued on the sheet after playing with them to see how I could get the best fit.  
Then I did the shading.. you can see better in this close up.
The shading was done using the Portflio oil pastels. I love them! The are simi soft and work great with water. I lightly drew around the photo's and then with a damp brush blended it into shading.
let me add in there a little goes a long way.

If you haven't given them a try yet, you might like to they are a lot of fun. For more great things
 Please make sure you stop by  it's a blog hop on every ones desk. Thanks for taking a look .
