Over on Stamps and Stencils, they have a new theme..."Chirpy, chirpy, cheep cheep! I love wild birds and needed to join in.
I began, not on this repurposed page, but on the facing one, and after applying crackle paste thickly, realised that I would have to wait too long to carry on. So, when that dries, I could have another entry.
This one started with white gesso applied with a credit card, white stamping with bubble wrap and a little stone coloured stamping. I stencilled in Green archival using a TH numbers stencil and added some pieces from a paper napkin.
I added a few more stencilled numbers, blended some of the edges with neutral paints and then stamped using a PaperArtsy stamp of a hedgerow and Clarity stamp of some seedheads.
To finish, I stamped the words onto cotton fabric and darkened around the edges for a border.
My other page is still not dry, but I will be onto it in a bit!!
There was so much inspiration from the design team, that I felt compelled to have a go!
