Birds of a Feather

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Hubby and I had a lovely evening catching up with my cousin Paul and his wife Gill last night.

A very busy day packing for my journey to Sudbury tomorrow until Tuesday.

Today I am sharing a canvas I created last weekend.


This is an 8 x 8 square canvas which I have first painted black with Pebeo Gesso added texture to the base using scrunched tissue paper, Spiders web, lace, feathers and burlap and sprinkled micro beads onto some of the surface and the bird in the cage. I then gave it another coat of paint, I then added the embellishments and again painted everything black.


Once dry I dry brushed cream acrylic paint over the base of the canvas which highlights all the texture.


I then used gold and copper iridescent acrylic paint which highlights all the embellishments.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

A bit more Time to Craft - Anything Goes
A Vintage Journey - Things with Wings
Crafting-with-Friends - Anything Goes
Rhedds Creative Spirit - Anything Goes Mixed Media
Altered Eclectics - Anything Goes Mixed Media

Many thanks for stopping by Today

  15. Thanks for sharing your technique, Linda. I've done something similar covering with which gesso and then spraying colors. Black is an interesting idea. I just brought some back to Ukraine from the states.
