Squawk meets the tattered floral monster!

Feeling a bit low I thought I'd cheer myself up by just playing with inks and stencils to make some papers to use in my journals. Of course there were a few mop up papers! After cutting out some tattered flowers with the garland die there was a piece of paper that I just had to use along with Lindsay Mason's 'Squawk' from her Doo Lally Pip range.I stamped over the kitchen roll with a Lavinia stamps thistle head and added eyes.'Squawk' was stamped onto a piece of the paper I'd made. Hope it makes you smile....
 The background had been started a while ago so I just added a few dots through stencil some with ink and some with ferro gold. Couldn't resist doodling in some spiky flowers!
Thanks for looking, Chris

This really did make me smile (and I need it at the mo) I love your odd bird? the eyes on it brings it to life and the way that squawk looks at him/her? is so very lovely.

Thank you for your comforting comment.

This is so funny. Those goggly eyes have made the page. Hope it cheered you, it certainly cheered me as I'm not too good just at the mo.

Wonderful page - certainly put a smile on my face, so I hope it left you feeling more perky too! The flowers and the spiky frame round the word are really cool!
