Recycled birdie!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for everyone's lovely comments last week when I shared my 2nd creation.

I seriously recommend you following the blog if you aren't doing so already, goodness there is lots of  fabulous inspiration from the Design Team.. 

This week I have a small decorated canvas to share with you.. with lots of recyling going on!

The background was created using a piece of kitchen roll I had used whilst mopping up ink sprays.. I can't bare to throw them away.. some of them are just too pretty.

The gorgeous bird is from Prima you can find it in the shop {HERE} I coloured the bird using blue and purple Distress Stains.. see {HERE} then overstamped onto her with a text stamp using black archival ink.. see {HERE}.

The word sentiment on the canvas is from my craftbox.. I actually borrowed it from the front of one of my old craft journals it seemed just perfect!

I think this little birdie must be a magpie (just like me)... I recycled some wire for her to stand on along with the most gorgeous embellishment ever!!! My first time using one of the fabulous {Prima Junkyard Findings}.. just PERFECT!

I painted a full moon onto the canvas using a silver acrylic {Paint Dabber}

Thank you for calling today and leaving a comment if you get the chance.. 

  Happy creating, Gez oxox
