Feathered Friends

That’s the theme at MMM this week and there’s a beautiful birdhouse as an example… I decided to use my Birdie handcarved stamp and one of the lovely Home Impressions “Doodle Houses” to journal/embellish my first background Layer Love painting.

I used the drips as journal lines and branches and the writing actually says: “Flying so high like a Birdie, finding my Art Wings… Leaving the nest”.


Unfortunately the light has been pretty poor all day so I had to use the flash and it’s not as garish in RL – the punchinella parts are more subtle, but I think Ria will like it!

    Very cool! I love how you journal on the the drip lines! Just a pretty color!

  2. Love the colors you used and the thought behind the piece.

  3. These dark, sumptuous colors are unusual and bold choices to use with this motif, and they help to cinvey an air of mysticism perfect for your theme. I truly love the depth of this painting.
