Compendium of Curiosities week 29 - Weathered Wood Grunge

It's CoC week again and as soon as I saw the theme I immediately thought of trees and so that's what I stayed with. (The little birdie is sitting on a weathered wood grunge tree stump). I used the technique as described on P.50 in Tim's bible, but I have covered most of it up, it is there, I promise Linda. Do pop over to Studio L3 to see all the lovely entries and to see Linda's interpretation too, such inspiration, just fabulous.


So here is my tag. I used paper from the lost and found stack, the caged bird die, sizzix leaf die, tattered florals die and a philosophy tag. The flowers are made from 300gms watercolour paper, victorian velvet DI and aged mahogany re-inker sprayed with cosmic shimmers and glimmer mist. The pearls and ribbon are from my supplies.

I am having such fun this week, I haven't had any work so I think I have been able to post every day, but back to normal next week, never mind.

Enjoy the rest of the week and thanks for sharing this with me.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Those colors just SING "Springtime," and boy, do we need a little of that right now! Brenda, your tag is gorgeous! The weathered wood tree stump is perfect, and the sweet little bird with her happy pink flowers can't help but brighten a winter day. I love that background paper, too.

I'm glad you've had such a fun week, and hope the fun continues right through the weekend!
