Another Magical Garden!

If you know me you will know how much I love gardens and of course birds! My page for Hazel's theme 'Magical Mystery Tour' at Art Journal Journey includes both!
I used a background I already had in my journal and added some blue paint to it.
Kim Dellow's 'flowers' were stamped and coloured and then I inked the row of birds from the same set individually to sit on them!
A magical time for me is when lots of the same variety of birds arrive at at caravan garden - like the Goldfinches last year so I coloured them all the same! 
I realised when I looked at the photo again that there is also a Chaffinch there and had a light bulb moment - Elena Zinski's bird thought they were friends of his but…!

I am going to be absent from my blog for a day or two - spending time with family, so I wish you all a Happy Easter!

Thanks for looking, Chris

I got a kick out of seeing the journal page with the birds all painted the same color. It is fun and lovely, too. This was not just well stamped, but tastefully colored and detailed, too.

Great photo. I didn't see the birds on the feeder the first time you showed this one. I know, sometimes you have to hit me on the head.
