Happy to Fly

Hi everyone, hope you are enjoying your weekend. I'm back to here with my project for today's Mixed Media Place post!

This mini card has been created with some of my favourite textures; denim, corrugated cardboard, wire and burlap flowers.

I created the background by layering papers and die cut elements adding metal embellishments then softening the composition with flowers. Texture has been added with mica flakes which I sprinkled into wet gesso ground the flowers.

I used an old jigsaw puzzle piece from my junk box which I painted with gesso, then added paint and pencil highlights. The resin bird was coloured the same way, which works so well when the pencils catch all those details of the bird.

Hugs until next time,
