Today the optional theme at Twisted Thursday is For the Birds. I chose to use the bird theme as a prompt for my faith journal and study Matthew 6: 25-33.
I started by applying clear gesso to the pages. Once it was dry I used gelatos. (These have been sitting in my craft room for a while resting while I have been busy with my Copics. I decided it was time to do something totally different and out of the zone for me.) I colored the pages and smeared the colors around with a baby wipe.
I stamped the border carrying parts of it into the page and used a decorative stamp in the corners to add more texture/interest. I stamped my bird images. The one on the right side is stamped directly onto the page; the left side was stamped onto a piece of designer paper. I colored both images with pencils and/or Copics. I added bits of old lace and the floral pieces to the page. I stamped FAITH in the upper corner and wrote in parts of the verses I wanted to include.
Lastly, I splattered some gold paint mixed with water and painted around the little Blue Jay on the left.
