Going down to the woods….

This is a very quick visit (and probably scheduled!)

It is my latest entry to Art Journal Journey - the theme - 'If You Go Down To The Woods' 


I love looking out for birds among the branches when we visit woods - I usually hear them before I see them and some songs I recognise immediately.
This page uses some paper that I have had for a while, already printed with text.I ripped it diagonally and added some mop - up kitchen towel. I then added some stencilling and some stamping over both. The feather at the bottom was layered onto some more mop up paper, some hand made paper and a piece of napkin with a feather picture on it - unfortunately the latter did not show up so I have used a real feather(from some earrings I bought for 50p on a visit to Claires Accessories with my Grand Daughter.
The picture of the bird is from a Papermania set and the Freedom word is from the Zen Angelic words from Lavinia Stamps. 

I hope to take a woodland walk this weekend!

Thanks for looking,Chris

A beautiful page Chris, I love to watch the bids as well, though they are rather noisy, early these mornings, it must be spring.

Awe, yes, I'm in awe. The bird fits nicely with your theme, Chris. I really, really like the background and the way you matted the feather. This is a genuine beauty. Happy Sunday.

It's lovely to listen to them. Do you make little videos of them on your phone....I do?!
Then you can listen in bed at night.

I like your page with the windy path.
