I scribbled my yellow Gelato on my pages and blended them with a paintbrush and water.  This is my background.  I like how the scribbling makes different levels of color when mixed with water.

I wanted to make this tree stamp from SinCity Stamps look like a bigger tree so I did some "Second Generation" stamping.  This is when you stamp your image on scrap paper first, then your journal.

See how there is a lighter look of branches behind the actual tree?  That is the Second Generation stamping.  It makes the tree look much bigger than the size of the stamp. Awesome!!

I used this spiderweb paper a stencil.  I didn't want it behind my tree so I left some areas out.  I used black ink and I pounced it through the paper/stencil.

Looking awesome!!  The yellow color is so nice and shaded looking and the faint spiderweb design adds the right amount of interest to the background.

The finished page.  I stamped the fence crooked across the bottom and I added some spiders to the webs.  I also inked all around the layout with black ink.

I stamped the circle face last and added some red marker around the mouth.  It's fun to make holiday themed art journal pages.  I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.  Thanks for watching!!  xxDaniella
