Fly Free- Scrap For Help DT- with 13 Arts Papers

Its that time again to reveal my layout for Scrap for Help
Here is the challenge this month.

As you can see I used the 2 Crafty Birds on a wire chipboard on this layout. I used a wooden stick and cut it into small pieces. Then I glued it on the chipboard where the wire was to make it look real.

I primed the birds in 13 Arts Gesso, Then I covered them in 13 Arts gel medium. After that, I sprinkled blue micro-beads on them and let them dry.Then I painted them with the 13 Arts Pearl Sky blue mist and added some gesso on the edges.

This picture was taken on our recent trip to Florida. There were so many birds on a wire that I had to take a picture. I really wanted to use my 2 Crafty Birds on a wire chipboard.

The flower cluster was made with some Tatiana Prima flowers, some white 13 Arts flowers and with some mini flowers I found at the dollar store. Best find this year, if I may add!!

To make the drips in the background I watered down the Gesso and dripped it down the page. Then using a Tim Holtz  stamp, I stamped a swirl along the page.
