Birds & Bister

Happy Day, Friends!  I had a mild interruption yesterday and never had a chance to share my I Brake For Stamps project so......welcome to my day after Monday IBFS share!  I'm so glad you stopped by!

I recently received this beautiful sheet from Sweet Ms. Della, Birds, Sheet 141A.  It's a bit of a conundrum for me.  It's a beautiful sheet---the bird images are so beautiful...I feel drawn to them, but I must admit, in real life.....I'm a little creeped out by birds.  There!  I said it!  I blame Alfred Hitchcock and a house I lived in years ago.

The house had a huge living room--one wall was ceiling to floor windows.  The birds loved to dive bomb that window as if they could join right in on our fun.  To this day, I have an abnormal reaction to low flying birds and, especially, to dead little bodies laying about my yard.  Again, I blame Hitchcock, but......enough of that!

My project for today started wtih bisters.  Again, an experiment.....I wondered how/what bisters and a gelli plate would look like.  Truthfully, it was less than wow and I could have achieved the same result by loading everything onto my craft sheet vs gelli plate.  But, y'know......I had to try. 

After creating the background, I added a variety of stylized card stock using an eclectic assortment of stamps from I Brake For Stamps, some doilies and sequins--I love those things!  I have a bunch of background stamps that are just wonderful to have around--like staples in my pantry of stamping!  One such set is Textures.  You just never know when you are going to want to add some extra texture to a project.  The set contains great variety and they work great for mixed media canvas art, also! 

Additionally, I used Number Background.  It added the vintage effect I was looking for.  Right under the greenish card stock, you can also see that I used a beautiful lace image from one of my all time favorites, Lace Borders! This set is also a huge staple in my arsenal!  So many beautiful images!

Finally, from the brand new sheet, Birds, Sheet 141A, this beautiful image of birds and blooms!  This is a great sheet and I'm excited to experiment and create with it! Don't forget to use my savings code when you shop the IBFS store!  SAVE10JANE.

Have a fantastic and creative day!  Don't forget to be awesome!
TTFN, Jane
