.........a blog called Empire Of The Cat, owned by Elle, today she is our new host at Art Journal Journey with her fabulous theme of - Tell Me A Story.
First of all a big 'Thank you' to Neet, for hosting last month.
I love traditional stories and Hans Christian Anderson's stories were always a favourite when I was a child. I was old enough(just) to go an see the film of his life. One of the songs I remember the star Danny Kaye singing was the Ugly Duckling.
I assembled some papers I wanted to use but the only duckling I could find was more like a growing cygnet than a baby so I had to go to the Internet for that.
I used my Kraft journal and added some texture paste mixed with white paint through a stencil.
Papers were arranged on the page and I popped in an AAll and Create die cut.
The main image is from a Ciaobella Christmas set. I added more texture paste/paint over the edge of the frame on the left.
The words are from the Ugly Duckling song and were made on Printshop.
There are so many traditional stories and I look forward to seeing your choice!
Thanks for looking, Chris
