It is not quite spring here, but some of the song birds are starting to sing again, which means we can't be too far away. Here is my spring girl with a little spring bird perched on her shoulder.
I started with a simple watercolor background and then added and splattered some Twinkling h2o's. I then sketched in my girl.
I colored my girl with Prisma colored pencils, acrylic paint, watercolor, and paint markers.
I then stamped in the flowers using Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn, and Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink. I was going for a watercolor affect.
Then birds are stamped using a hand carved stamp I made myself. This was my first attempt at carving a stamp and definitely won't be my last.
I then added my saying with a black pen and a Sharpie paint marker.
Lastly I added my journaling and pictures from this past week in a fold out flap I attached to the page. I am submitting this to the S.W.A.T. mixed media challenge. Be sure to pop on over to see the wonderful creations. As always thank you for stopping by.
