Bird Journal - my own page
I've now completed all six pages for the bird journal jam swap. This last one being my own. I chose the theme of 'Lavender and Lace' (any interpretation) and colours lavender, lilac, cream and white. I did it similar to the pages I made for the others in the swap - one side scrapbook paper and the other inked, versamarked and mica powders. I collaged a couple of scraps on it - one being the sheet music of 'Lavender's Blue...dilly dilly...'. I found an old lavender and white flower in my ribbon box (I've had it for ages and never found a use for it before), and when folded in half it became the perfect tail piece for my bird, and the inner petals became the eyelashes. I finished the bird off with some white lace and beads - and not forgetting the little metallic bells hanging from the beak.
Once I have all my pages back from the others in the swap I'll bind them together somehow and will post a picture of the complete journal. tweet, tweet!!!
