Things with Wings at TIOT

Hello there! We have a new theme at Try It On Tuesday starting this week - Things with Wings.
The Design Team have some wonderful winged creatures for you so please do take a look!

I have made a journal page!
I just had a need to get a little bit messy, so onto a gessoed page went Distress crayons, dampened and blend with my finger and sprays.
I also added little bit of stamping too.
A little stencilling and some more text stamping and I cut three circles from a dotty scrap on my desk,(I lined my punch up to get identical circles) which I doodled onto with white pen 
Next I painted a Dina Wakley scribbly bird - using my plastic lid palette.
I wanted my quote to show up so I stamped it onto paper, tore it out  and inked the edges.

Our 'Winged Things' challenge is open for two weeks and I am looking forward to seeing which winged creatures you will choose!

I am entering in Gill's 'Inspired By' theme at Art Journal Journey as this page was inspired by seeing the birds in our bird box the other week. When we went back last week more birds are nesting now (either that or it's a second brood)

Thanks for looking, I'll be along later with my TSFT post! Chris

Brilliant page, Chris. You can feel the pleasure in this - lots of design bits that go unnoticed, but finish it off perfectly. Absolutely love it!

A beautiful page Chris, sparked by the influence of that super bird that has so many possibilities. Perfect background with it's shape and colour.
Wishing you sunny days and hope your garden issues are sorted soon.
Creative wishes Tracey x
