Creative Jump Start 2014 - Fly (Art Journal Page)

HI!  I have signed up for Creative Jump Start 2014.  So far it has been lots of fun and very inspiring! 
The overall theme is using household objects in your art.  What fun!
In one of Natalie's first video's she encouraged us to use a very interesting household object to create cool texture ... like I did here!  Curious .. sign up for the course and find out what made this awesome design.
When making it, I used Liquitex Gesso spread over the entire page, then used the household object to create partial circles of awesome texture! 
Added home-made sprays and Gelatos for colour.  Then collaged a bit with some bits and pieces in my stash.  I really like how the bird turned out ... it is cut from grungeboard (Ranger) then painted with more Liquitex Gesso, then  stamped using more of the turquoise home-made spray.  The brad was rusted (followed France's technique) and then some white spray added to it and more of my turquoise home-made spray to look like patina. 

So much fun.  I have so much more to share. Stay tuned!
