Birds at FSC

Well it would be lovely if you could join us for the Birds  challenge at FSC for the next fortnight and for this theme I have created a mixed media canvas using Sizzix dies to give me the focal birds and birdhouse.

Layers of card, fabric, wooden embellishments, text paper etc over a coat of gesso and then painted with more gesso and then a layer of white acrylic paint..

Misted with colours, allowed to drip and merge and heat dried.

Images stamped onto tissue paper and glued on.

Background covered with more white acrylic paint. Die-cut birds covered with text paper, coloured with PanPastels, fixed and then sprayed with watered down acrylic paint. 

Birdhouse made from ribbed card and hammered card also sprayed with watered down acrylic paint and other embellishments added.

This is post number one today, I will be back later with my PanPastels piece.

I hope you enjoy your Sunday and manage some creative time somewhere in the day.

Thanks for visiting.
