This case is full of Spring and I chose this pair of Cardinals as my subject. The birds are all a twitter with donning their best plumage, foraging for food, and finding that perfect mate. I created my background by painting a layer of gesso on black card stock and then took a dry brush to rough it up and finally too the wood end of the brush and made the slat lines. It actually turned out like what I saw in my head! That doesn't happen too often.
For my evidence I used: wood, paint, distressing, and a fence. My journaling is on the wonders of Spring.
