Morning everyone, thank you for popping in. Today I'm over at Country View Crafts, with my second inspiration for this months challenge. I hope I inspire you to play along. There has been some fabulous makes so far, so if you have time, pop over and have a look at all fantastic work my teammates have created.I wanted to interpret the theme from outside the box and so thought of travelling thoughts and inspirations we have everyday, but often don't recognise we have them, because they are so automatic. I also wanted to use these birds from Prima as I just love them. In this piece they represent our thoughts.
Here are some of the steps
I have used what I call the boxed in technique. I just love the effect it creatives. You can see this technique explained more here.
Lyndys Stamp Gang Sprays and water soluble crayons (Distress Crayons ) and Pencils (Inktense)
I played around to where I wanted each bird, this was just a first play and I settled without the flowers. It helped me to think about where I needed my brunches.
I stamped and cut out the birds using different pages. I then shaded them with the pencils and stuck in place.
And then some inspirational messages hand written in the blocks.
Lastly another look at the finished page. I've used my favourite colour combos in this piece, which make it pleasant to my eyes,
What's your fav colour combos you like to use?
Take care everyone and I'll see you soon
