Our feathered friends / Lintuystävämme

I love birds, what can I say. So I made a series, using the same materials to get cohesion.

Blue background is an interesting try-out. I received an embossing stencil but I have no machine. Instead I did what one learns in school: I made a rub-off. It helps if the paper is a bit damp, it takes the design better. I used the back of a spoon. (Wait till it dries.) Then I smeared a glittery paint on it, and this was wrong:  it flattened the raised design. ( I should have left it on the stencil for this step. Live and learn) Lastly I sprayed some ice blue mist. I rather like the mottled effect now.
Birds are German scrap, lower backgrounds are from old documents and then there's the (me-made, stamped) enamel tag on twine.
I have no words (but I am happy)

Linnuista puheen ollen, Ainon Linnun tietä haaste on edennyt puoliväliin. Täytyypä olla viitseliäs ja panna tänne useampi sivu kerralla. Anteeksi Aino kun olen ollut pitkään aikaan hiljainen siinä suhteessa!

    Minä käytän kohokuviokansioita monesti vain osaan kuvaa ja tuolloin painelen kansiota kaulimella. Saa kuvion sinne minne haluaa - yleensä :)
