Hi everyone. Another week has flown by. It is already December 11-wow!
Today I have another page for Tracey's The Meaning of... challenge at Art Journal Journey
I am really into creating nature based holiday pages this year (if you can't tell-smile). This page started with me cutting out this old cardinal die and then taking it from there.
My page is sprayed with blue , white and silver inks. Then I stamped the green cedar branch several times. After coloring my cardinal, I attached him to the page. I used paint and a Sharpie marker to create all the baubles hanging around him.
The cardinals come to my bird feeders every now and again. I always enjoy the flash of red. They are pretty regal birds I think. My favorite birds at the feeders are the chickadees though because they are spunky, social, verbal, and look right at me when I go out to fill my feeders. I call them my chicks and talk with them. Some of them are brave enough to sit just a foot away while I fill and arrange the feeders. I wonder if they are listening to me or just waiting for the food. They often chirp away, but not their alarm call, so I guess I am OK since I bring them food.
In case you aren't familiar with chickadees, here's a photo from Audubon.org.
That's all for me today. Enjoy the start of your weekend!
