{Art Journaling} Birds

Most of you know how I love birds. In fact, we have two parrots named Kiwi and Sugar. I also LOVE bird watching, and we have countless feeders in our backyard. I could sit and listen to birds all day. And it's not unusual for me to whistle back to the wild birds because I am so used to "talking" to Kiwi and Sugar in the house. LOL! 

Anyway, this week I bought what I call a "Peep cup." I belong to a scrapbook board where we are all called "Peeps." Well, the Peep cup and my love for birds were my inspiration for this art journaling page. Here is my new cup but of course I changed the lid to a pink one. 

And here is how my page turned out:
Pin It

And my page isn't complete without scripture so I chose Psalm 104:12 which says "The birds of the sky nest by the waters; they sing among the branches."

Be sure to watch for Tuesday's {Tip} as I will share how I created the straight pink lines on this page. I hope you enjoy today's creation, and thanks for stopping by!

Gretchen, I have not done a process video only because I can only work 15-20 minutes at a time on my pages. Sometimes they sit for days in between. :)

And JoAn, I got the cup at Bath and Body Works. It comes with the purple lid but I bought an extra lid in pink because I didn't like the purple. :) Enjoy!

Beautiful. Your verse, is it computer generated? It's amazing. Thanks. Sandy C.

Patter Cross said...

Thanks Sandy. An no, the verse is not computer generated. I stamped the words 'birds' and then used my typewriter for the rest of the verse. :) I use my typewriter for everything! :)

Oh my!! This is so beautiful! I love all the touches but that little bird is awesome!

Jennifer, the little black dots in the double line are a stamp from the Best Friends set from Unity Stamp Co. It is rather old so I am not sure if they still sell it. Have a joyous day, and thanks everyone for your sweet words!
