Little Wing



Hi everyone, hope you've had a good weekend. I have a wall hanging to show today with a mixed media painted background and using a Paper Artsy Paper Mache hanging and letter stamps, an Artemeo bird and branch die cut, Memory Box flower die and a mixture of DecoArt and Golden paints. Stamping is done with Archival ink and the piece was sprayed with DecoArt matte sealer.

I'm entering into Simon Says Stamps challenge this week which is 'Inspired by summer distress' and I have the blue and pink and a touch of green on the branch. 

The bird made me think of Little Wing as the title for this post which in turn made me think of the song 'Little Wing'. Performed by Stevie Ray Vaughan, it's below if you'd like to listen :).

Stunning wall hanging, fabulous painting and texture on this piece. I love the flowers from the Memory Box die, in fact I have just purchased this die, it's fabulous. The bird is stunning and the overall effect is very striking. Thanks so much for joining in the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. Tracy x
