Mexican Bird? haha!

Hi everyone!!!!  Something totally different for you today my lovelies.  I just adore all those luscious 'Mexican' colours......they are so vibrant and really make me smile!  So when I saw that *OUR CREATIVE CORNER* was using them for this months challenge I couldn't resist ;-D  Using a mix of acrylics and Neocolor 2 I have painted a journal page.

The colour palette...

The background has been sprayed through stencils then covered with clear gesso.  I love the feel of this on the paper!  It gives a brilliant tooth for other mediums and of course it stops the colour underneath from moving.  The funny & fat little bird is drawn freehand and coloured with the Neocolor2 crayons.  Doodling and a quote finish it all off.  So much fun to do this for myself!  The inspiration for the bird came from an online class from Tamara Laporte. 

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and I hope you like that I am showing you a different side to my crafting, HUGS xxx
