OH I had tons of fun getting all gooey with gesso, paint and ink! I started with wadding the newsprint and inking all the peaks and misting valleys before adding gesso...hmm that hid the newsprint look before I got started.
But moved on with adding textured newsprint to base. Adding more color, more paper. Stamped bird and branch on clean newsprint. The sentiment is stamped on a recycle envelope...it looks like bird tracks prints in the snow LOL. I added Inky Gold to the textured areas to bring attention to the details. (sorry pretty IRL)

Really beautifully done!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
