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.
Oooh perfect, looks fab xxxReplyDelete

Beautiful pages Hazel and those birds are on my wish list. Lovely colours and fabulous background. I wish my hand writing was half as good as yours. It's never been fantastic but it's getting real 'old lady wobbly' looking now :-(. Hands don't always do what the brain says these days.ReplyDelete
I like those bird stamps. Vibrant colours are fab xReplyDelete
Wow wow wow absolutely awesome journal page, the colours are amazing and I love the double page layout with only half done on the first page, it really suits the sentiment. I have inktense blocks and pencils but not used them yet, I really should get them out you really have inspired me, thank you. I have been umming and ahhhhing over these stamps and think I may now need them lol. Kezzy :-) xxxReplyDelete
