I love my garden and the birds that visit so it was a perfect time this afternoon after tidying the garden in the sunshine, to start a new project using Dina Wakley's bird stamps.
I began by randomly spraying Dylusion inks; spraying through stencils and printing the reverse to create a background. Next I stamped numbers and circles using PA fresco Orchid and Snowflake.
I am getting braver with my own handwriting and scribbled away with a Black Promarker and White Uniball Signo.
I stamped the birds onto book pages and coloured and washed them with Inktense crayons.
I cut them out except for the fiddly legs, restamped them onto the page and glued them back onto their legs.
I have started a collection of pieces of text cut from magazines and OUT OF DARKNESS COMES LIGHT seemed appropriate for this particular day, so that was added too.
