It's All About The Birds
Hi all! Finally getting back into the groove of everyday routines and blogging after a fabulous beach vacation ( photos in my last post if you care to look). It was nice to take a break from the PC but I have missed you all.
Before we left I checked in on a nest a Carolina Wren was building in one of my hanging baskets on the front porch:
We are lucky to have several pairs of hummingbirds which are constantly visiting the two feeders out back. They are definitely a totem of mine.
One of our friends gave "the girls" coloring books with pencils and crayons. My book is titled "Calm" and the above is one of 4 cards I made for our beach friends after coloring it in the book , copying, resizing and printing it on photo paper. I added glitter and the thank you. On the left is the envelope I stamped.
And this is a journal page I created while thinking about nature and the beauty of birds:
Background done with stencils, spray inks and acrylic paints. The bird is a Dina Wakley stamp (as is the sentiment). I fussy cut and added the bird to the card stock square after painting the background, bird, and branch. The leaves are fabric.
Joining in with Art Journal Journey (theme is Nature's Wonders); Moo Mania and More (theme is Nature's Beauty); and of course - Paint Party Friday!
Will be around to catch up with everyone the next few days. Enjoy!
