Good morning and happy Monday. Today I'm back with my second "Summer Fields" piece for Country View Crafts. The fields around us are looking lovely at the moment (though a little muddier underfoot after a week and a half of rain). I love listening to the birds and I'm getting better at recognising them, I'm now fluent in Robin and Magpie! Here's my bird canvas.
I started with an 8x8 canvas and a piece of Art By Marlene collage paper as I wanted to do an image transfer.
Now I won't pretend that this is exactly how I wanted it to turn out, but I do like it. I think I was maybe a little over zealous at the 'rubbing the paper off' stage.
So, I've had these Tim Holtz Collage Papers for a while, so it was nice to use them.
I painted the large flower with Fresco paints in poppy colours.
Then I cut some wildflower stems from card and more collage paper.
And finally my hummingbird from another of Tim's sets.
And there we are, all done, and not a stamp in sight! I can't remember the last time I made a piece without stamping, but I like it just as it is.
There's still loads of time to join in with our challenge, just show us your Summer fields.
Thanks so much for looking, take care, and have a very happy week x
