Hi you all! We had a sunny day here, warm and pleasant, and Sunday should be just as nice - a real sun day!
I woke up very early again, and used the time to do lots of crafting. I had a lot of wood and chipboard pieces that needed to be painted, I finished an album with the piece I showed yesterday as cover, made a couple of cards and tags, and some journal pages. The background of the journal pages was already painted with a mix of yellow and orange that was left over from painting my moon. I added some red and purple which I wiped on with my fingers - yeah! -and then smoothed over with a baby wipe. No spraying again! I want to try a spray-less week. When it was dry I added the peacock feathers (CWS) with burgundy emulsion paint. It takes longer to dry than acrylics, but it is a lovely colour, and even better, I got it given to me for nothing!
Frida with parrots has been printed out, fussy cut and glued on. The birds on the right have been stamped onto tissue, glued to the page, coloured with gel-glitter pens and outlined with a silver gel-pen, which I also used for the lettering and to add some highlights. I changed Frida's saying a bit to read 'Feet, why do I need you when I have wings to fly'. The wings, and the birds on the left are rub-ons.
I am linking to Art Journal Journey (challenge yourself /something different) and
Journal's Journeys, where the theme is birds.
This was fun to make, and I already have an idea for the next pages.
Have a good day, take care, and thanks for coming by.
