Watch the Birdie!

It's that Friday feeling here at Artistic Towers, and with my eye very slowly getting better , I thought I would create a little no stamping piece today. Actually it did start out with stamping, but because I am not thinking straight, I messed it up! So I started again, and came up with this!"
This is one of those gorgeous hanging wooden birds that we sell, painted with the new Black Studio Gesso from Claudine Hellmuth and then covered in Studio Multi Matte medium, and lots of watch bits added to it. When the multi medium dries it is clear and will stick metal, plastic, material, in fact anything....wonderful stuff!



I really enjoyed making this piece, and praise indeed from my DS, who really liked it!! Wonders will never cease.....
Have a very creative evening

One word Jennie - wow! I absolutely adore this and am really into steampunk myself at the moment and currently working on a piece with your fabulous cogs and gears stamps.
Don't think it will come up to the standard of your bird though!

PS: Hope the eye's better soon, I know how frustrating that is.
