GC57 Chestnut Theme-Wings
Collage Stuff. I haven't done many 4 by 4 swaps, but did one a few months ago over at Artchix Studio. The theme for the swap was birds and this also fits the Gingersnap Creations "Wings" challenge. I made the background by covering watercolor paper with old book pages, then applying a light layer of gesso and finally spraying dye ink sprays over masks. I'm really happy with how they turned out. I used German scrap birds and perched them on a swirly die cut. The little bird embellishment is made by layering a bird brad over a paper flower and German scrap stars. The bottom border is ribbon tape.
