A BIRD WITH HEART

Greetings, dear reader! Blessed Sunday to you!

Just a quick post to show you what I've been up to today...I'm finally using the fab little Maya Road chipboard birdies I purchased a month or two ago...here's my first creation with said birdies:









I used the wrong side of a wooden plaque, and then glued cardboard and paper to it. I then added Tim Holtz's distress Crackle Paint in Tattered Rose. I used several coats to get the cracking effect I wanted. I used a Hambly transparency as a pocket for the photo, and used a Rhonna Farrer rub on (heart). I used Basic Grey's Wholy Cow Rub Ons (Flowers) . I painted the little bird with the tattered rose paint, and then stamped it with Stampendous Perfectly Clear Pattern Trio. I used Tsukineko Brilliance inks in Pearlescent Sky Blue and Pearlescent Pink. I then just added vintage millinery flowers, buttons and baby pom pom trim in pink.l I just love the way it turned out...although I'm not sure where I'll hang a "pink" anything! (It's a fairly new fave color...)

Anyway, it was great fun...only 2 days til Colorado! Woohoodlyhoo!


More soon!

I am really learning to love the crackled paint effect. I'm creating table decorations for the girls' party Saturday and doing some altered art pages so that they are ready for photos after Saturday. In short, I'm making a monumental mess!!!

Your DUH moment in all of this, I had this great idea for a mixed media guestbook for their keepsake from the event. As I sat sorting treasures for said book the light bulb goes on--ALL of the guests are 4 and 5, they can barely tie their shoes, let alone SIGN a book...HA!!!
