Today I though it was time to get my new Faber Castell Polychromos pencils out again and start practising using them. I got them from Father Christmas and he would be so disappointed if I didn't use them. So I got out my favourite bird stamps and started colouring and it was a lot more difficult than colouring with Copics.
When I finished I cut all 6 birds out and used three of them in this art journal:
I painted the pages with gesso first and then used PaperArtsy Fresco paint in yellow and orange. I also did some stencilling with Distress Ink and gesso and did some background stamping. The birds were then adhered on the page after I put down some washi tape to ground them. The sentiment was handwritten and filled in with a paint pen. That was it... Maybe I will do another page with the remaining three birds.
Thanks for stopping by !
