....and we are nearly there with it, despite a few sticky moments and delays. This CJ was "Nursery Rhymes" and belongs to my friend Helly who is a CJ virgin. I had a few ideas but as I know her quite well I decided to go with a blackbird pie!!
I hand drew the pie and use a bit of a bird stamp I have to stamp the blackbird peeping out. The background is watercolour crayons washed over and then I hand wrote the first line of the rhyme...
Inside are my four and twenty blackbirds; a feat of multiple masking! All was coloured in with watercolour pencil or crayon before attaching the pie lid with a brad. It has turned out rather similiar to my Berkeley Square hasn't it?
I am a married mother of four who took up papercrafting about 4 years ago. I started with ATCs and Inchies and as I got braver I started to Scrapbook too! My current faves are stamping CJs (oooo just love 'em), scrapbooking and making mini books with the shedloads of photos I take!As you can imagine I have to fit it round the children and also numerous pets so blogging can be a bit hit and miss! Generally I blog better in school holidays when I am not at work as a TA. Thank you for popping by and I hope you like what you see here!
