Nesting Journal Page by Deborah




Into February... and I'm continuing with my bird theme. This time I've made a page in my small journal. I know it's a bit early for nest building (apart from owls, apparently) but think of it as artistic licence - or wishing Spring would hurry up!

I used my brayer to cover the blank pages with the PaperArtsy paints, drying between each colour. Then I stencilled the stardust in Jet Black Archival ink, using the mini blending tool (so much easier to use than the rectangular one!) I used the Fude Ball Pen to outline the larger stars.

I die cut various feathers from copy paper I'd previously cleaned my brayer onto, then edged them with a black Sharpie. I traced two of the Song Birds onto the back of some blue brayered paper and cut them out (minus the feet), also edging with black.

Once I had glued them in place, I added feet to one bird (with the Fude Ball because it has a finer tip than the Sharpie) and made some of the feather shapes into a nest. Finally, I used one of my favourite go-to stamp sets - Ali Edwards Incredible - for the sentiment and arrows.

  4. Yes, I'd like spring to get a move on too... there was almost a moment in the sunshine this morning, but no - gone again!

    Love the vivid colours here, and the simple joy of the primitive shapes. Fab feathers!
