The weather here on my little island is lovely - all the trees are opening their buds and the birds are tweetling :-) When I was walking the dog on Friday, the birds were so lovely that I was inspired to do another Art Journal page to celebrate them :-)
I saw a great video a couple of weeks ago, where you lay colour down, draw your design and then overpaint the rest of the page. Well - I tried that and I must admit I was not successful. It looked like shiiiite but I persevered with it and finally ended up with this...................
I couldn't find that video again, so was bumbling in the dark but it's sort of a cool page :-)
I used inks for the background. I stamped the birds, flowers and hearts on it and then I used a text stamp whilst masking out my birds. I used Gesso to overpaint it - maybe it should have been white paint ?.
The poem extracts were printed on paper and glued on and I highlighted some bits with a white nail art pen.
