Fly home 2.

Another bird, same quote as on the tag a few days ago - this time the mood is a bit darker. The evening is closing on, home is still far away.

This journal page was made with stenciling, stamping, resist stamping, watercolor and Infusions.
I just love the way Infusions particles react when you sprinkle them over a wet surface.

The bird was stamped with embossing ink, then embossed with clear powder. (A few flakes of gold made it into it, I had just been playing around with sheet gold.)

The Big Dipper (made of silvery diamante dots) is guiding the bird as it flies home.
There is a key lying in the grass.  (With some more diamante dots, a second, this time colorless and raised stenciling above the first which I then highlighted with a rubbing of golden mica.)

 I am entering my journal page into:
