Free As A Bird

Its taken me a while to create anything this week, I have just not been feeling very creative but I actually found some time late this afternoon to join in a couple of challenges.

This piece is for the following challenges:-

Simon Says Stamp and Show - Anything Goes.
Crafty Individuals Challenge - Free As A Bird.
Grungy Monday -To be inspired by Tim's technique from 12 Tags Of Christmas, 2007, Day 8.
This piece began with a Wendy Vecchi Art Part which I decorated using Tim's technique from his 12 tags of Christmas (the link is above). I have used images from Crafty Individuals CI-287 and CI-218 and a couple of freebies Crafty Individuals sent me with my order.
I painted the small wooden bird house with Fresco paints and added Fly Free as a Bird to one side of the house to follow the theme this time around from Crafty Individuals.
Bird embellishments have been added along with plenty of Tim's Idea-Ology pieces.  I applied Fresco paint to the Philosophy Tag and wiped away any excess with a baby wipe, leaving colour in the indentations of the lettering.  I have also added fragments to a couple of the bird images to add more dimension.
My flower has been created from the Tattered Florals die with a Maya Road piece added to the centre.  The flower has been cut from Tim's Vintage Shabby paper stash.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, much appreciated.  Enjoy your week, Tracy x x

Tracy, this is beyond wonderful! I love everything about your art, but what I love most is the fact that every piece offers a little treasure hunt. The more you look, the more lovely things you see! This beautiful blue masterpiece is no exception. I especially love the tiny birdhouse and the little owl charm!
