Mixed Media Monda - Feathered Friends

A new Monday, a new challenge on Mixed Media Monday :-) This week Gillian is our guest host and she has chosen "feathered friends" as her challenge to us. This piece is done on a stretched canvas 13x19 cms, or 5x7 inches. The houses and bird are Collections chipboard covered with vintage book pages and further distressed with Distress Ink and have lots of different little elements added. The background is painted in acrylic paints - this part was fun, trying to get a faded and aged appearence. What fun challenge - thanks Gillian!
