This week will be all about birds: bird on cards, birds on canvas, on Art Journal, caged birds.... lots of lovely projects our DT has been working on.
To start off, Gio has altered a beautiful Tando Creative tray.
Tando offers a large range of printer's trays and "Scenelits" which are wonderful to work with.
I painted two pages of an old book with PaperArtsy Fresco Paints Snowflake. I stamped the peacock twice using the Kanban acrylic stamps: Birds of paradise-peacock and Jet Black StazOn.
I coloured the peacock using several colours of Distress Inks, using a baby wipe for largest area and a Zig BrusH2O Waterbrush (detailer) for small details.
I cut them out. I made some little cuts all over the peacock's tail with an exacto knife
I painted the Tando small printer's tray with PaperArtsy Fresco Paints Snowflake and Metallic glaze. I stamped the background using the Kanban acrylic stamps: Birds of paradise-peacock and Jet Black StazOn.
I glued all the structure together and I painted the borders with PaperArtsy Fresco Paints Old Gold and I stamped the flowers from the same stamp plate.
I added some embellishments: the little birds are made of stamped shrink plastic, I glued the mini bottle and some lace. I glued the two peacocks one top of each other on the printer's tray, the second one letting free the tail.
For the card: I stamped the peacock using Jet Black StazOn on a piece of acetate. I coloured the bird using several shades of alcohol inks (on the opposite side).
I glued it with Glossy Accent to a piece of cream cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the same plate and added a piece of lace coloured with Cosmic Shimmer Scarlet Mist.
