Blue Bird

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I had a fabulous day yesterday crafting with my friend Kath, I got quite a few bits done and will be showing them over the next few days.

A few weeks ago I got some new fabrics from Terry's Fabrics to have a play with and post about, well that is exactly what I did yesterday. One of the fabric's that I chose you can purchase here.


1. I took an 8 x 8 canvas and picked the area on the piece of material I wanted cut out and adhered to the canvas with Mod Podge.
2.  I then took Imagination Crafts Apple Blossom Stencil and used Sparkle Medium Blue Sapphire to the top left hand corner so it hung over the bird cage.
3. Taking the Bird from the Bird Feeder stencil I used Lapis Blue and positioned the bird to the right of the cage.
4. To finish off I have used Detail Sparkle  White Shimmer to add detail to the centres of the flowers.

So simple to do but boy it looks really effective.

Thank you for stopping by Today

Stunning, Linda! We both know that purple is the most glorious color in the world, but if I have a second favorite, it has to be blue. This canvas just rocks!
