My Little Birdies...

Hello, hello! It's Monday and that means we have a new challenge waiting for you at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.

From specialty stamping paper to glitter, corrugated to extra heavy mixed media to tissue – special papers abound! This week we challenge you to use something other than regular patterned paper or cardstock on your page – and inspire us with the world of papers available!

My starting point for this layout is some specialty stamping paper, a glassine bag, and some tissue paper. Oh, and fabulous stamps too - of course!

I want to start a new album, all about what it's like to have four girls. So, I stamped four little birdies on specialty stamping paper and watercolored them. Then, I scribbled a messy circle on the remainder of the specialty stamping paper, to serve as a "nest."

Then, a little bit of yellow tissue paper for the background...
... with a bit of white paint and some more watercolor...

I then wrote all their names on the glassine bag, cut them ou,t and added them along the birdies. I stamped my title, then found some little flowers to add...
Some mist droplets, stitching, and a few little bits of bling... and there we have it!

A perfect intro page to my new album...

 All about what it's like to have four little birdies...
