Mixed media book journal - bird house


Hi everyone and I hope your weekend is off to a good start! Another page in my mixed media art journal to show and this time a bird house still using the theme of spring. 

The birdhouse is cut from patterned paper and everything else is acrylic paint, black ink, white pen and bit of charcoal. 

I'm joining in at Paint Party Friday this week which is a lovely blog where you can share what you've been painting each week.

Enjoy your evening.

Just when I think I've made an OK card, you go and blog something like this, and then I'm SO disatisfied with my efforts.
Did I tell you you're bloody marvellous?

He estado viendo algunos blogs con el challenger de ahora y aunque todos tienen su trabajo no llegan a tu creatividad y mezcla de pintura, colores acertados y textura, desde luego que si fuera por eleccion ganarias, pero como es por sorteo pues lo mismo es algun otro trabajo.
Enhorabuena, es una preciosidad.
Besitos.

Hi Chris!
I wish I had the right words for this page. The colours are beautiful.
I love how you use acrylic paint and white pen. The black gives it definition. I love how you used paterned paper for the birdhouse and then added your shading to it. It's all so fabulous. I love it.
