Birds of a Feather...
I started out with 3 canvas panels and covered
them with a paper napkin (I separated the napkin
from its plain white backing) using Golden's
semi-gloss gel medium.
Once the gel medium was dry I gave them
a light coat of watered-down gesso.
At this point I really wasn't thrilled with it and so
I inked the edges with turquoise blue chalk inks and
also used the ink over punchinella/sequin waste
as a stencil.
It still needed more depth so I stamped with white acrylic paint using several different stamps. Once the paint was dry I added a layer of Golden's transparent blue air brush paint mixed with transparent glaze. As the final layer I used more of the white paint with the punchinella/sequence waste to give it the honeycomb designs you see. Next I drew some birds and cut them out of scrap paper then pieced them together, inked the edges and adhered them by running them through my Xyron and for the finishing layer I added Golden's semi-gloss gel medium.
