Bird Ready For Spring Journal page by Ellie Knol

The birds are in our gardens; looking forward to spring... I am too!  

Playing with color and stamps in a journal makes for joyful time spent.. 

The picture above is where the coloring of the stamped and fussy cut images still has to be done!

The background is a playful one with Neocolor II crayons... 
How? Scribble Neocolors II onto the page, spread the colour by wetting it with water-diluted gesso. Try to do each color with a fresh load of gesso as it will turn muddy otherwise. For interest, add pure gesso in a few spots. 

Add more stamping in the background with Mixed Media Stamps!
What is the 40 for? It's our house number in the street, the row of circles are the 'stones' around the border .. 

I am ready for spring!
