Art Journaling and Process

Here's an art journaling page I have been working on for a few days now.  I made my 9x12 background with my homemade gelli plate, which is 11x14.  Then I stamped some smaller patterns in the background.  Next, I stamped the flowers, colored them and added stems and leaves.  Then I opened up a photo in Photoshop Elements and, using my Wacom tablet made a sketch of the photo (I'm not a drawer, LOL!)  I printed out the sketch, colored in the back of it with an oil crayon.  Laid the colored side down on my page and traced around the sketched lines.  Then I used the original photo as a guide for coloring.  Added some journaling and VOILA! 
Journaling reads:
Psalm 139:14 (NKJV) "I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelouos are Your works, and that my soul knows very well."
Written around the figure of me:  I want to always use my gifts and talents in a way that brings honor and glory to the Lord since He is the One who gave them to me.

Thanks for stopping by!
