MIX271 - Inspiration. I entered mixed media + gesso + orange and purple + birds and got some very wild hits, although all of them together gave me the idea for this gessoed canvas.
DOX inks of oranges, reds, yellows and purples were sponged on my white gessoed canvas. Then drywall tape was applied in the corners to use as a stencil, and I used my fingers to rub Metallic Lustre wax over the tape to make the design in teal. Music bars stamped with black memento ink. Black DOX around the edges. The thread was colored with the darkest orange DOX. The birds are colored with Gelatos and then die cut, and trimmed in black ink. The eyes are tiny beads. They are attached with dimensionals. Glitter paper and a butterfly punch for the tiny butterflies. A craft bottle cap, Be Happy sticker insert and a clear dome over the sticker completed the project.
