Things With Wings
our the latest challenge at FSC this fortnight.
Oh my gosh…it was so difficult for me to settle into one idea for this challenge.
There were so many choices jumping into my mind, from dragonflies…to butterflies…to chooks…
and then I settles on birds ~ well one bird anyway!
This arch has been a favourite of mine for some time but I have never used it as a window before. I have absolutely no idea why not because now it just seems like a real logical thing to do.
So then the background became a patchwork of bricks to create a wall to put the window in.
To age the brick wall – as you do as arches are old things – I just worked the ink here and there and added a splatter stamp for extra effect (it’s subtle, but it’s there).
And of course there is ivy…because when things are old nature takes over…
Then I wondered what to look at outside of the window and decided on this swallow and nest from TH…again, some of my favourite stamps.
In hindsight, maybe I should’ve put some eggs in the nest…oh well, next time!
I would like to enter this is the following challenges.
