Birds in Sunshine by Debs Wainwright



Morning everyone, today I'm sharing a journal page which I created in my garden craft room. It was a lovely sunny day, and the birds were singing, all of which inspired the  page.






Here's what I did


I stamped the birds in position and drew the branches and stamped the flowers. Using water soluble oil pastels I coloured all the stamped areas. This started as a play around but I really liked it, so needed to add a background. 







Using pigment powder I sprinkled in the white areas and activated the powder with a mica spray. I dried the page and then using a stencils and clear crackle paste I added some more interest.







I felt I had taken it too dark in places so added some white and pink circles.








I used a black pen to add detail to the branches and where needed on the stamped elements.


What I used




Have a great day, see you soon

Hugs Debs
