Little birdies.

Good afternoon folks.

Over at The Craft Barn Blog today I have a project using Gelatos. (http://www.thecraftbarn.co.uk/blog/gelatos-week-neil-walker/ ) Unfortunately the gremlins have been at work so there is no project sheet with pictures there at the moment so I thought that I would fill in the details here for you.
This is what I did:
 Roughly colour the birds with Gelatos.
 Use some paper towel to blend the colours together.
 Add further layers by wiping through a mask and adding some paint until you are happy.
 Brayer out some paint onto a craft mat and use it to stamp onto the shapes.
Allow to dry thoroughly
 Add a selection of flowers from Petaloo using a glue gun to secure in place.
Use some Stickles to add a little sparkle and allow to dry.
 Use black enamel accents to do the eyes. Leave to dry overnight.
The finished pretty little bird hanging. I've joined the two birds together though you could just as easily leave them separate to give you two.

Hope you like them and that you have yourselves a good and creative week.
