To start this week and to close the month of February, I am sharing another of the bird panels published in The Stampers’ Sampler. There are similarities to the one shown HERE as I wanted the trio to be similar in texture, theme and colour palette.In the junkyard of a derelict building, perches a sweet bird atop a coil of rusty old wire. The song from this bird is as sweet as if he were perched upon a blossoming tree, finding joy in his voice despite the neglect surrounding him.I know most of you will relate when I say that, there are times when working on the background can be the most enjoyable part of the process and sometimes the most rewarding.
You might be able to make out the layers of media and the subtle shadow of ink used with the Dinky Stencil which fills in the areas which I left exposed of the Grungepaste and stencil.I remember at the time wondering whether to use real feathers but I really do like the Redlead feather stamp so opted for that, creating a cluster with tied jute and wooden bead.All the wonderful stamps are from Redlead.To receive amazing products to play with, then the enjoyment of working with the stamps, stencils, paints, etc and the icing on the cake, to then have the artwork published in one of my favourite magazine titles alongside so many stamp artists I admire – I am so very lucky!Thank you for your visit to this post.
