Birdcage Triptych (by Rachel)

Hello everyone, our regular Guest Design Team member Rachel is back with her final blog post this month. She has created a beautiful mixed media project for us this week.

Rachel writes:

Hello all! My third and final piece of inspiration for this month is a small triptych. I have used the following stamp sets in creating this piece: Birdcage Collage, A Little Bird Told Me, Rustic Fragments and Sunny Sunflowers.

I started by gessoing the triptych, then once dry, I stamped the Birdcage Collage and coloured it using a combination of acrylic paints and Distress Inks. Then I painted the gessoed surface with Distress Ink before stamping over it with a Rustic Fragment stamp. Next I prepared some card with Distress Inks and stamped and fussy cut some of the flowers, leaves and also a bird. I added these to the sides of the triptych and finally added the words 'a little bird told me'.

I hope you like this piece. Big hugs, Rachel x

A big thank you to Rachel, who will be back with us soon.
