Mixed Media Monday - Come Fly With Me!

I'm not altogether happy with this painting, but I don't have time to do something else for Mixed Media Monday this week, so this is it. It is painted on a 5x7 in or 12.7x17.8 cm canvas board, using acrylics and stencils, rubber stamps etc. The birds were added using a gel medium image transfer. It's the first time I've tried this on canvas, and it worked perfectly :-)

Can not imagine what you're not pleased with Diane, it took my breath away when I saw it on the MMM challenge blog. Those blues and your birds and the white rings = Love it all!
Thank you for such an inspired challenge again this week!
