Different is beautiful.

I have a mixed media page to share today.
While we are away in the caravan I spend some time colouring in and  have a number of pages that could be used up instead of sitting in a book
. So I have made a start and promised myself to create more.

On the left is the original page.
I fussy cut out the bird and branch.
The base was  water coloured and stenciled
I did add a bit more shading to the bird,  with blue oxide ink, once I had it stuck down onto the background I used. The soft greens just seemed to disappear into the page.

The words were computer generated, the little bird is a digital image.

Thank you for calling in to see me today, you are always welcome here.
