Things with Wings

Can you believe it? It's July already! The new month brings a new challenge at Country View Crafts Challenges and it's... Things with Wings.
For my first project I altered a page in my Creative Dyary. It was one of those pages with a preprinted image on and, although it's a cool image, I wanted it to be part of the background. Using very thin layers of Snowflake, Beach Hut and Limelight paint I gave the page a facelift and then added stamped images on top (including a bird for he is a winged thing!) Then I took my pencils and added colours - lots of blues, yellows, oranges, pinks and purples as well as some washy tape and highlights of Snowflake.
I hope you like my page and you join in with us this month - you may win a prize!
(If you're wondering what she loved - my daughter fell in love with Manchester Metropolitan University at its open day last week)

I love those colours Gabrielle. It gives the original print images a 'ghostly' feel. Great news that Freya liked Manchester Met.
