Fly Free

 I've been on a fall colors binge the last few days so I thought I'd try something with a bit more color.  I started with a gessoed page and the use Liquitex Pigment Crayons that I bought several years ago.
I have no clue how to use them so I did rainbow like stripes across the page. I thought a baby wipe would make them move and I'd blend them. Nope.. they didn't move. They were waxy like kids crayons with more pigment.  I finally gave up and glue a white napkin over the whole page to tone down the color.

Then I cut grass from a gelli print with my old deckle scissors. I love those scissors.  The flowers are from a stencil my friend, Robin was giving away last year.  I've used that stencil over and over. I have a lot of light purple molding paste/spackling compound left from another project so I used it for the flowers and let them dry over night.  Today I painted the flowers with Artist Loft Glossy acrylic paint and then doodled a bit on them to make them whimsical.

The birds and words are yet more stamps from my A Little Bird  Rubber Dance stamp set.  This set is huge. It has at least 20 stamps in it.

My photos are not so great these days. I don't know if it's not enough light or the camera is sick.  It could just be user error.
