Keep A Song In Your Heart

I am showcasing the BIRDS OF A FEATHER plate from Artistic Outpost this week decorating a small canvas, a change from a card.
The background has been painted with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints and my bird has been stamped onto crumpled tissue as I wanted texture on my canvas.
 
The bird has also been coloured with paints and I have added a couple of piece of lace for added texture and interest.
I stamped the sentiment from the SONGBIRDS plate onto a scrap of fabric again for further texture and then added a wooden bird for dimension.
I also stamped a little text using snowflake Fresco Finish Paint.
To complete I added a flower spritzed with a reinker mix along with a wooden bird and heart.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Lovely, lovely, lovely! The text stamped in white paint is just fabulous in the background and the bird looks just perfect against that blue, blue sky! I love it.
