The week 11 Documented Life Project was to "put a bird on it". I love birds, so this was a fun one for me. It just took a bit of pondering to decide in what way to add a bird to my journal. In the spirit of challenging myself, I decided to sketch a bird. I found a "how to sketch" a bird tut online, and had some fun practicing.

I like some of these better than the one that ended up on my page!
Do you ever take photos and then realize that the project is not quite finished? It happens to me all the time. This is my original photo:
I added more Distress Ink to the bottom of the page, some extra black highlights in the border, the gesso splatters and a some gold Gelato smudges. Now it's finished!
Thanks for stopping by to check out my progress.
