Hello birds!

Hello dear friends!
Today I'm sharing a fun and cute canvas for 2Crafty Chipboard blog, 
with  lots of colors and ...birds :)

I had this beautiful set of birds for some time and just waited for the great idea to come and use them.
The set contains three sizes of birds (two of each size), so I came up with a bird pyramid.

I decided to use 4 of the 6 birds, not only for the reason to keep my pyramid not too high, but also to use the particular white cardboard I had. I measured a balsa wood at the same size of the cardboard, cut it in 3 and glued it down.  I painted both of them with gesso, blue silks and brown distress stain. 
Ι didn't use any stamps or stencils, as I wanted to keep the background quite and simple and focus on the birds.

To alter the birds I used silks, a little bit of gesso, stamps and a black permanent pen...

First I painted them with just a small amount of gesso very carefully, because I didn't want to cover the beautiful engraved pattern of them. Τhe white gesso helps the colors to show bright and right. 
After the gesso dried, I painted them with the silks.  Then I stamped on them here and there and paint some details with a pretty thin paintbrush again with silks. Last thing to do was to draw the legs with the black permanent pen.

For the tittle I used the Script Font L/C alphas. I really like this script because of the calligraphy type - the letters abutting each other so nicely like they are handwritten.
I altered them with white crackle paint and I love how they turned out!
