Bird Crazy Mixed Media project

Here's my Mixed Media project for this week. This is another double page spread from a re-purposed hard back novel.

As always I take a lot of inspiration from watching my favourite Mixed Media artists videos. This weeks project is based entirely on a project by Vicky Papaioannou. (My "Death before Decaf" project from last week was based on one of her projects too. I think I could watch her all day!)

If you look very closely you will see that under the painted layer is a Cricut Washi sheet from the Lia Griffith Woodland pack. Vicky often uses Tim Holtz tissue paper as her bottom layer. I didn't have any of that (ahem.... it's on its way though...) so I hunted through my stash so see what I could use that might be similar.

The Cricut Washi sheets were gathering dust (I find it difficult to find uses for it) so I thought I'd give it a try. It's self adhesive but I used Ranger Multi Medium Matte to make sure it stuck really well. It dried a bit wrinkly (maybe too much medium) but I think it adds to the texture.

The birds are stamps from Tim Holtz (Bird Crazy) and the floral images are made using the Tim Holtz Wildflower stencil, texture paste and Distress Ink (Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, Pine Needles and Shabby Shutters) applied with daubers.

The border (Around the Edge) and the sentiment (People... Not a Fan) are Dylusions stamps.

The painted background is done using Tim Holtz Distress paint dabbers. (Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio).

Here's a link to Vicky's fabulous video where she shows how to create her page.
