I love this week's colors over at TCR and I love making my own embellies so when I saw the challenge over at Challenge Me Happy I decided to play along with both. I have these oh-so-funny pictures of my baby at two days old unintentionally (or intentionally?!) giving us the birdie and just had to scrap them!
Because there is a birdie involved, I tried to give the page a grungy, urban feel softened up with a couple of real birdies...my play on words, get it?..."birdie"...hee-hee...OK, OK, enough of that! So I pretty much used gesso and paint to make the background. I doodled all the borders..I find white-out pens make excellent doodle pens against black or dark cardstock. The birds were hand drawn and cut out of cardboard then painted. Hope you enjoy it:
Here is this weeks color palette..
