Smudgefest - Day one

Yep. Smudgefest has begun. The full details are over on the Smudgyantics blog. I hope to be able to complete all the projects. We are given the challenge in the morning and have to post and link by that night. It's going to be tight considering I work full time as well. Well I got day one done. 6 more to go.

Today's challenge is "Bi-Polar". A project that showcases two opposites.
I have used the sheep and fence from the Killer Bo-Peep's Build a Garden set and some shadow trees for my art journal piece. Stamping and masking my way through.
I hoped to depict opposite direction and opposite sides of the fence.
All images coloured with promarkers. The background created with coloured pencils.
BP is from Crafty Chaos on a pale green marbled paper given the DI treatment.

A little bit of journaling to finish.

I am entering this into the challenge over at
