Mixed Media Birdhouse Canvas

Birdhouse Canvas...Acrylic paint on 12x12 gallery wrap canvas. Birdhouses made from Gelli® print scraps. Stencils used are Dot Fade by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous, and a journaling stencil by Chatter Box called Funky. The round black stamps are from the Limor Circles set by IndigoBlu and the white circles are made with a bottle cap. The thick black line stamps on the one side were made using the end of a makeup sponge. The three flowers along the bottom are made of chipboard, painted with acrylics. The spirals in the centers of the flowers are from the Tiny Backgrounds stamp set by Hero Arts. Black outlines and flower stems made using Derwent Inktense pencil and a black extra fine point Painters paint pen. The white accents on the birdhouses are white gel pen by Uniball Signo.
