One of the joys, at this time of year, is to wake up to the glorious sound of birdsong. The challenge this month is in celebration of our fine, feathered, friends. We would love to see your mixed media projects, that include at least one bird. Whether it's a journal spread, an assemblage or card, just make sure that a little dickie bird or birds, feature somewhere. Please don't forget to include stamping, or stenciling or even both! Can't wait to see your creations!
So I decided to go ahead and have a play in my journal - using stamps and stencils mostly from Dina Wakley.
Here's my final piece and I have a step by step in photo form to share with you.
First off I used a Clarity mask, stencil brush and adirondack ink to create a cloudy sky.
Next I added some grass using meadow ink and again a stencil brush.
I used the stencil from Dina Wakley to add some birds in latte ink.
Next I stamped these scribbly birds using potting soil archival ink...
I then used distress inks and pens to colour the birds.
I added a sentiment and some more vegetation - the last thing I did was to use a posca pen to add some red paint dots around the edge.
So I hope you can join us! You can find the page to add your makes to here
