Tweet tweet....

Hello fellow Crafters,

Today I finally used my new Dina Wakley Scribbly Birds stamps. They had been lying on my desk for ages and I kept looking at them. So I made this little art journal with one of them:

The background is a gelli print. I just used a chevron stencil and white ink (you can hardly see it) and a bottle top and some black ink for the circles and the splattering. I also did some sewing. I sometimes do sewing on the cards I make but on art journals it is new for me. I like the effect so I might do it more often. I stamped the bird and the 'tweet tweet' on white card stock. I coloured the bird with Copic Markers and clear embossed him. I cut him out and glued him on the washi tape that I stitched on the page. I doodled around the letters, cut them out and adhered them to my page. Lastly I adhered the page in my journal. 

Thanks for stopping by !! 

Hope you like it......


  1. Mooie kleine pagina, schattig dat vogeltje, mooie kleuren heb je gebruikt!
    Groetjes Karin

  2. Het is dat je zulke stevige kleuren gebruikt hebt, anders zou ik zomaar zeggen: Lief!! Groetjes, Gerrina

  3. What a fantastic stamp, Corrie! Love the pinks and blues you have used to color this stamp! Lots of detail here, like the white chevrons in the background and that wonderful stitching--which always adds a nice touch. My machine is out and ready on a table in my studio, but I never think to use it--going to change that! Thanks for the inspiration!

    I continue resist the urge to purchase this stamp set but with great difficulty!
    I like the addition of the chevros and the stitching is a lovely addition - such a fabulous page.

  5. What a tweet (oops, sweet) little bird this is, beautiful colours for a journal!

  6. Zo mooi deze stempel, ook een mooie achtergrond Corrie!

  7. B eautiful design, love that bird!
