Among The Birds

Hi Everyone,
Today I am going to give you a step by step on a recent page I taught.

You will need 1 x plain white card stock and a pack of Prima Garden Fable chipboard and more.

I have also used 


Other items you will need....
Water spritz bottle
white gesso
paint brush
Acrylic inks Pink,sky blue,deep violet, vivid lime green
Lindy's stamp gang Bodacious blush, sweet purple teal.
glossy accents or dimensional magic.


First step is to attach your chicken wire to the background and then paint over with the white gesso. Let dry.

Cover your square frame with gesso and dry.
Spritz with water then using acrylic inks lime,sky blue and pink drop randomly over your frame and let dry.

Now your background is dry spritz with water, not all over, just in random places. Use a small amount of inks pink and lime green and move your page around to disperse colour. If it is too dark in any place just hit it with some more water to dilute it.
Dry off with heat gun or set aside to dry naturally.

Next spray across your layout from bottom corner to top corner with Lindy's Bodacious blush. Dry.

Add some drips and splatz with the purple ink and the Lindy's sweet violet purple teal. Dry.

Now you can layer all your elements, I have put some things under the frame and some over to give dimension.

I have used glossy accents to attach all the sequins, it is tedious but I haven't figured out a short cut for that yet.

Thanks for looking
