Birds canvas

I am suppose to be stock taking, so it is a good excuse to craft and blog instead. I will have to get around to the stock taking before the weekend as we are off to a trade show at the weekend. We are sure to see and order loads of lovely new things for the shop and that will be another excuse to play when the new stock arrives 

Below is a little bird canvas that  made a couple of weeks ago .



4 little square canvases were painted with acrylic paint in contrasting colours.
The birds are cut from card using a Cricut Machine and two were coated with Distress crackle and when dry swiped over with Tarnished Brass Distress stain. I added a few embellishments from the shop shelves and some bits of table confetti (we always seem to have various bits laying about as get left on the boat) The heart and key charms attached to the bottom of the canvases were painted with Vintaj Patinas to match the canvas colours. The top canvases are attached to the bottom with eyelets and rings and I made a hanger from wire that was lying around looking useful. The words are by William Blake and Say 'No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.'

Ok! I've played (more of that in another post) and blogged now it's back to the stocktaking and some sort of shopping list so I don't end up spending my last shirt button at the weekend.

Keep crafting
