Happy Saturday everyone.
Wendy is our lovely host at Art Journal Journey, and her theme is birds. Did I mention how much I am enjoying this birds theme? I pulled out my bird stamps and refound some I forgot I had.
One of those stamps was a peacock. You can see him up on the top right. I began my page by stamping the background and using bits of left over printed tissue paper. Then I added the Middle Eastern mandala like designs, which were punch outs from a little booklet by Studio Light.
I gave the page a light coat of gesso then so they would become more of the background, and I made my own hand drawn version of the peacock's tail feathers.
I stamped the peacock and hand wrote as well as colors the word exotic. Finally I added the belly dancer.
With all the autumn browns and golds outside right now, this blue is really calling me. It is rather an exotic color, at least for late fall, don't you think?
Hope you like my page and are having/have a nice weekend. Not too sure what is on my to do list, but I'm sure I'll be happy with whatever it is.
Thanks for visiting.
