Aren’t these guys so much fun?! They come from a stamp set by Carabelle and the minute I saw them I knew I had to make an art journal about friendship.

In terms of techniques used, it was back to my favorite go-to techniques. They never get old and they help me achieve the style that I love. For my background I used a favorite technique, sticking down tissue paper with text.

For coloring I used my all time favorites distress paints and I just had to make a black and white border!
