A Little Bird..

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all doing?

Feels like I have been back ages and only 2nd day at work!

Another canvas to share, love creating these!

Step by Step

1. 18 x 13 cm canvas which I have adhered embossed flourish card and then painted with Black Gesso.
2. I added the lace, birdcage, and metal and crocheted embellishments and gave another coat of black gesso.
3. Once this layer was dry I then added the birds and beads to the centre of the flowers and gave it another coat of black gesso.
4. Once this was dry I dry brushed white acrylic paint with the flat of the brush on the embossed base of the canvas.
5. To finish off I then used Pebeo Gold and Violet Blue iridescent paint using the dry brush technique.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Altered Eclectics - Anything Mixed Media Goes
Crafty Time - Anything but a Card
Rhedds Creative Spirit - Anything Mixed Media Goes
Recycle, Re-Purpose, Revamp - Always Anything Recycle Goes
Brown Sugar #164 - Anything but a Card
