HI Gang, Corrine here with some nesting going on. Using Tracy Lyn Huskamp's Eggs, Speckled Stencil S021 today in an eggalicious journal spread. Now eggs are one of my favorite foods, we eat them all the time. We have pet ducks in our back yard, who nest in the most unusual places, so it was no stretch to create something using this stencil and thinking about nesting.
Starting with a paint splashed journal page I used pan pastels to fill in the eggs and built my nest around them with torn paper from a recycled, stamped manila envelope from a friend. Drew in my excitable Mama bird and filled in with paint and glitter glue to make the nest a happy place.
You can see the happy Mama here and below is a close up of the nest itself
Who wouldn't want to hatch in such a happy place?
Next I worked on the other spread giving a somewhat top down view of a nest and used blue pastels to make robin's eggs. I painted around the eggs in bright colors to give the illusion of nest materials and thought about nesting, incubating ideas and creations, hatching plans, cracking open in so many ways and soaring out with those ideas on bright wings. An is a beginning, a birthing of so many things...
Well I hope you enjoyed my little romp through birdland and all the eggalicious possibilities of this stencil. Watch for more projects all through August as the Creative Team makes magic with StencilGirl stencils.
