Imagine SpringPosted: March 7, 2014
Spring is very slow to emerge here in Kansas.We still have snow on the ground, and more to come. It’s cold and dry, and unpleasant. BUT, I do hear the birds singing in the morning, and spotted a robin the other day, so I think our hope for spring…..may be bringing it about! In celebration of my thoughts of spring, I created this little canvas, created using a Genuinely Jane Studios feather cutout book.
The background is painted with silver glitter acrylic paint, and stamped, and then painted over with aqua blue paint in 3 layers. The feathers are stenciled using a stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop.
I also poked a real feather through the back of the cutout, for some soft texture.
A gear from Prima, as well as some flowers and that FABULOUS spooky branch from UmWowStudio, gave a look of a lovely place for a bird to nest…….if it could imagine its way out of the brass cage. 🙂 I love the contrast of the copper wire and brass birdcage, to the soft flowers, feathers, thread, and delicate branches.
Ah…..if I think hard enough….will spring arrive quicker? Will I be transported to “spring” in Hawaii? Let me give it a try, and I’ll let you know.
Have a wonderful weekend, friends.
