Little Black Birds.....

When I saw this beautiful sketch at OUR VITNAGE AFFAIR, I know I must play along....



beside this sketch, you also need to have "BIRDS" on your project
Here's my take.......


I started out with kraft cardstock, which is my favorite, and then do some faux stitching around the border.....


and some "real" hand-stitching around the photo.....


Clare is always goofy when we bring out our camera....


seen here Clare and Grandma at Central Park, New York City....


I play with some acrylic paint and glimmer glam Love potion # 9 on this layout...


stamp a few black birds and falling leaves......



I like this, hope you do too! : )
