It's a Bird Board for Art and Soul Studio

We have the most gorgeous March Mood Board for
Art and Soul Studio.
The Mood Board called for leaves or feathers
so on a walk back from my mailbox (it's a bit of a walk)
 I collected a few bits of bark and leaves
with some amazing colours and markings
to add to my creation. Also found a few feathers
left behind by some birds.
Here is my 8" x  8" finished canvas.

and the Mood Board

I started by adding gesso to my canvas and then
 inking Art Alchemy Metallic Paints in
Frozen Berries and Romance Pink with
strokes of white .

Adding some interest with some inked rings
using the lid of one of my sprays
then texture with Tim Holtz Stone Stencil
with DecoArt Crackle Paint.
Now the inky fun part begins by going outside
and spraying my leaves, bark and birdcage with
Dylusions Funky Fuchia Spray, Tim Holtz Antique Bronze
Spray Stain and Lindy's Witches Potion Purple Spray.
I did this on the side of an old trailer in our garage.

Now to decide where to add my elements.
Straw bits were sprayed with the colours above
and I added Finnabair Art Stones.

Here are a few close ups -
That beautiful blue shimmer is from
Lindy's Witches Potion Purple Spray
Added a few feathers I found in our yard. 

And to finish - a photo of the bird cage.
Thanks to Aussie aNNie
and my blingy bird is from my stash.
