The call required the use of aqua, soft yellow, green and orange. I doubt I would have used those exact colors otherwise!!! It was a challenge to step a bit out of my "box"! I really like the combo now!
I made this art journal totally! I cut Mixed Media paper and tore the edges for the pages. Then I bound it with my Bind-It-All.
The cover is natural canvas that I dyed with Ranger Color Wash. Actually, I used the back side because it was a better color for this project. I stitched the canvas to a smaller piece of natural canvas with some cotton batting sandwiched between.
Now for the cover, the fun part!
® Media Mixage™ line. I painted it, textured it and sanded it a bit. A bit of turquoise felt shows through the opening on the bird. I added fabric wings that I colored with ink. The bird pulls 2 flags through the sky! I used letter stickers from Cosmo Cricket to spell the words. I added a couple clouds to the sky, too.
Thanks for stopping!!!
