The Dawn Chorus!

Helloooo....I just love listening to the Dawn Chorus...even the crows :D  Its Music week over at *The Craft Barn Blog* and I thought to do something a little different and have the chorus as my theme.

The background has been painted with PaperArtsy Fresco in Pumpkin Soup.  (If you haven't tried these paints then go get some...they are beautifully creamy and last for ages!)  When that was dry  used the Tando Music Mask & Pebeo acrylic in Red Ochre and stencilled over the top. (I love this paint too haha)  It was a bit too bright for what I wanted so I brayered a light layer of gesso over it.

This is a brilliant way to tone down any paint or patterned paper!  The top sections were glued together then painted with Pumpkin Soup and Crackle Accents added.  How cute are those birdies from JOFY's new collection???  They have been black embossed and coloured with Promarkers.  The quote is PC generated.  And...yes...even after a late night I love to hear the birds early in the morning hahaha!  Thanks for popping in!  HUGS xxxx

Hi Karen, you have really captured the theme
of MUSIC. Listening to birds is so special,
they create the most amazing music.
This is beautiful. xx

Fabulous hanging Karen I agree the dawn chorus is beautiful, except being woken by the cuckoo at 3.15am is not so funny!!
