Think Monday Think ATC

This week's challenge is 'Birds'

I used a scrap of white paper from a Japanese shopping bag - they have pretty ones as opposed to the brown paper bags we use over here.

It had very random little gold cranes imprinted on it.

I stamped the large Japanese crane and embossed it.

With acrylic paint, I painted layers of blue to give it a textured look and feel - symbolic of the sea.

As I painted further up I reduced it to a colour wash and the took out areas to form clouds.

I then edged it with the dark brown which I used for the stamping.

This is my first time doing the TMTA - I hope you like it - I had fund making it
