Chunky 4x4 Page

I'm sure that by now my partner has received her page although she hasn't let me know yet, I think I'll go ahead and post it anyway.

The theme of this swap is Create and can be whatever interpretation you want. A 4x4 Chunky Tip-In. For this partner at least I'm going with 'Life is Art'. I may carry this theme out with all my pages but you just never know. We get partners every two weeks and I may be in a completely different place at a later date. I had visions of being able to sit down and get a number of pages done at one time but I'm not sure who I thought I was kidding, hehe.

My little bird is done with my mainstay acrylics on a washed and mottled background. His feet and the leaves are cut out and glued on and I collaged some of the letters. I did have some copper wire laying around and I've been wanting to see if I could form it into words and I thought this would be the perfect application for it. I really like the way it turned out. That may be my running theme in this swap *grin*

The blue grid in the background was from something I picked up off the construction site to save for later. I've been finding lots of cool and interesting things to use. The word 'Art' is hand drawn and I was excited that it came out the way that I wanted...yay me!

OMGosh - I love the mixed media and the artwork in this one!
You just keep getting better and better (if that is even possible - you were fantastic from the beginning ;))

Aww Kaleesi, thanks again!

altermyworld, thanks so much for your lovely comment!

Lunagraphica, thanks. Making the wire word was just about as easy as it could be. A nice small pair of needle nose pliers and you're set. I would love to see what you come up with!
Love your work too!
