Distressed Hummingbird

Hey there People!  I have another project up on the eP blog today as April's Guest DT!  This week I pulled out my never used very neglected Distress Stains and played a bit also with the new Distress Paints.    Just to make sure it was a true "mixed media" project, I included pastels and a bit of charcoal too! Add some very rusty skills of sketching, water coloring and I came up with this:



 I hope you will drop by the eP blog  for more step by step pictures and listing of products used!!

'Till next time.............pull out some "neglected" mediums and have FUN!!

It's awesome. Really love the depth of the bird (coloring). I can't ever get that with any of the stains or sprays. What a perfect morning (work issues) to sneak online and see your wonderful project and see my name. I'm amazed because you definitely inspire me :-)
