New House Book Page

Here's a new house book page, "Fly Away". The base is a Maya Road Home Ring Book Page. I painted it with with Claudine Helmuth Studio Paints, Landscape Green and Sky Blue. I transferred a bird with a gel medium transfer to the background, but it's almost all covered up. I cut the nest out of some paper that I bought at an art supply store. The girl image is from the Angel Faces collage sheet. I painted her yellow with some Studio Yellow Pastel paint. The eggs are from the same paper as the nest. I put the girl in the nest and glued the nest down the Claudine Helmuth Studio Gel Medium and used the gel medium over the top of the nest too. I glued down the eggs. The words "fly away" are from a vintage second grade text book. The gold wings are the Collage Stuff Small Gold Angel Wings. The bird at the top is from the British Bird Tobacco Card collage sheet. To make the circles, I used a Stickles glitter glue bottle like a stamp. I inked up the bottom of the bottle and "stamped" it on the page. The text stamp is from the Tim Holtz Urban Tapestry stamp set. I have some cool fibrous handmade paper that's off-white. I painted it blue to match the page and glued it down with gel medium. I added a little bit of glitter with the Stickles glitter glue. I used sequin waste as a stencil to the make ink "dots". A little brass key on the chimney was the finishing touch. I'm working on the back of the page now. Enjoy!
