Bird is the Word - Peace


This is the first time i've participated in a Bird is the Word Challenge.
The Word is 'Peace' so I used the quote below and some instagram 
pictures of a sunrise I took in July this year.


I painted my own sunrise on the Kraft base with acrylic paints.
I used this flourish from 2Crafty Chipboard, painting it white first and 
then using paint daubers for a mottled affect.

I cut some pieces out of the flourish because they were obscuring my photo's 
and I used the same technique but with blue colours and added them to my clouds.

 Here's a last close-up showing some sparkle I added by brushing Ranger stickles over the background.
and some sequins, I've been adding sequins to quite a few layouts recently, such an inexpensive and easy way to add some sparkle.

thanks for popping by, cheers. :)
