The Flight of a Feather by Lynne Moncrieff



I have a lovely collection of gathered feathers, gifts from birds that visit the garden and was prompted to pair one with The flight of the feather stamp from Nature's Gatherings stamp set. 



To prepare the background, it was a matter of applying Walnut Ink (crystals dissolved in spray bottle), lightly misting the paper with this before applying the Multi-Surface paints and areas of gesso. At this stage, picking up another sheet of watercolour paper to press down onto the paper with the media, almost working as a mono print. This will be laid aside to apply more media to later but what it does, it creates lovely texture on the first sheet of watercolour paper.  

Onto Craftyboard Circle, white Gesso was applied and to this, the Black and Grey Multi-Surface paints, misting with water. 

Onto scrap of rice paper (which was from That's Crafty) stamping words with Black Soot and more stamping features in the form of three circles, this is the smallest circle from the Nature's Gatherings stamp set. Little scrappy pieces were added, piece of found paper, muslin stained with Walnut Ink and a primitive stitch added for detail. 

Grungy dots were created by partially inking up the circle from Scribbled Words stamp set.  

Thank you for visiting.
