Mixed Media Bird Art I

I was inspired by Dina Wakley (Ranger) to try my hand at painting three little birds onto an 8x8" canvas.  A light coat of Gesso was applied to the canvas board and dried.  I then applied Aqua and Navy.  I roughly drew the birds and branches and filled them in with acrylic paints, highlighting with a Derwent Inktense Ink Black 2200 pencil.  Live, Laugh, Love was written on the birds with a Faber-Castell Pitt artist pen in Black 199 M.  

So Sweet was stamped in StazOn black ink from the Stampin' Up set Hello Life.
