I started with a piece of cardboard that I tore to reveal part of the inner - then used grungepaste and a birds stencil to give some texture to the background. Once dry I added a coat of gesso then a coat of evergreen bough distress paint. I spritzed and flicked with water and removed excess paint before allowing to dry. Then I sprayed with distress stain sprays - iced spruce, denim and the silver one. Once this was dry I added treasure gold to the background birds.
Here's a close up which shows the text stamping that came next and two of the scribbly birds themselves. I also repeated the text in boxes of my writing too.
The scribbly birds were stamped onto card, cut out and coloured with spectrum noir pens then added to the piece.
I should like to enter this into the following challenge:
Big hugs to you and hope you have a good Thursday!
