Even though we live in the suburbs, we get a lot of wildlife hanging out around our home. We get a lot of deer, especially a doe with twin fawns. I have several bird feeders up, so there is a large number and variety of birds, but this was the first time I've seen a hawk. A few years ago I had never seen a wild turkey, but today the yard was full of them - over a dozen! It just amazes me how all of these critters small and large are able to co-exsist with us. Here are a few snap shots:
I haven't done a mixed media page in a while, so it was fun to break out "the stuff." I prepped the page with gesso, added texture paste with a Memory Box stencil and misted it with blue & green Color Shine. The beautiful chipboard pieces (leaves, birds & swirls) are all by Creative Embellishments. I always feel like my pages look so professional when I use Creative Embellishments products. I sprayed the CE chipboard with the same Color Shine mists I used on the background, but, as you can see, the colors intensify on the chipboard - so pretty. The title was made with Thickers & October Afternoon letter stickers. The flowers and tiny leaves are Jolee's. The hawk photo is popped up with 3L Foam Squares.
