Birdie Page by Angie Coomber

 Hello arty friends, how are you?

It seems to have turned cold here so a good excuse to stay indoors and make some art.

I have recently rescued a pile of packaging paper from a delivery and I thought I might use some of it. I cut some of it into A5 (ish) size.

I used embossing ink, white embossing powder and some of the Doilie stamps to create a background. The embossing ink soaks into the brown paper quite quickly so I only did a few at a time.

I stamped some of the Sketchy Birds onto watercolour paper, coloured them in with watercolours and cut them out (I forgot to take a photo at this point!)

I created a branch by cutting out some black and white scrapbook paper and glueing it to the background. 

Then I arranged the birds on the branch, used coloured pencils to add some shading and applied some Stickles glitter.

I matted the whole page onto a darker background and added a quote sticker.

These little birds really make me feel happy!

Until next time,

Hugs from Angie x
