Living Beings



'Living Beings'. is the theme the girls over at Art Journal Journey have set for us  this month.
I had already painted and splodged and random stamped the background of the page.
Added the girls head stencil , using the left over grunge paste on another stencil randomly round the page. Distress ink was added to the stencils when they dried.  Then left it for a while as I wasn't sure what to add next,  in the space to the left. .
On a tidy up session, now don't worry, it was only to find a space to work, I didn't  get carried away.
 I uncovered this bird stamp from  a Sheena Douglas set, and the page was sorted.
The bird was coloured with pencils and the girls head got a coat of gilding wax. I would like to think that they were  taking to each other and discussing the quote I added.

Thank you for taking time to stop by. The comments you leave me are always appreciated.
