New challenge at TIOT..

Come and join us! It's fun to use your new stuff, or a new technique!

The stencil is new to me, from The Crafters Workshop...... the parrot... 
and the texture paste I haven't used before. It was a cheap texture paste I bought last year at LIDL (which is a supermarket, hehe). It's amazing, doesn't swoop under the stencil at all!  
(The color yellow should partly be more greenish tones...) 

I started with adhering some music bookpaper to the page, then coloring it with watercolor crayons. Two layers of watered down gesso gives the toned down effect. The parrot is (also NEW!) from a book I bought recently on e flea market, it contains the most beautiful drawn images. As the branch was not wide enough to cover the page horizontally, I drew the rest of it on both sides on white paper, and then covered it  allover with some texture paste. The shadows on the branch has been done with a pencil.  
The saying of the bird, is a Dutch saying, and it means something like 'all birds are singing their song their own way'.

  1. Awesome journal page Ellie! Totally love it! Molding paste is addictive especially with stencils. Your branch texture and shading is outstanding and pops off the page.:)

  2. It's a great stencil - and I love the texture you created with your Lidl paste! The parrot is lovely too.
