Hello Creative Scrapbookers!

Jayme Logehere with a fun post inspired by Kerry Engel’sCrazy Bird’ sign. I have been enjoying these little birds on all sorts of things, but when I saw Kerry’s sign and the quote she used, I knew I had to create one of my own.

I built mine on a 8.5×11 canvas. After covering the canvas with gesso and adding some ‘bumps’ with texture paste through a stencil, I covered the background with some delicious Dylusions paints from Ranger.

I love! love! love! how bright and vibrant the colours are.

Nuance Powders

Once the paint was dry I sprinkled some darker Nuance powders from Magenta over top and spritzed it with water. I rubbed a little bit of brown Dylusions paint around the edges, applying it with a baby wipe. I set the canvas aside to dry and stamped my Crazy Birds (Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous) and Paris background (Carabelle Studio) on Creative Scrapbooker’s Super Stock. I coloured them with watercolour pencils then spritzed the city image with water, so everything got misty looking. I threw on some Magenta Nuance powders as well.  I took a different approach to blend the colours on the birds- I wanted them to remain bright and vibrant, so I carefully washed them with a wet paintbrush. Once the pieces were dry, I cut everything out and assembled the pieces onto the dry canvas background, spraying it with a bit of Ranger Dylusions white ink spray.

Voila! There you have ‘Your vibe attracts your tribe’,  take II!

Happy scrapping!
