Gingko birdy

Hi everyone,

A warm welcome for my new followers,lovely to have you here and I hope you all continue to see something you like.....or something that you think nah don't want to try that.....only joking.....sort of.....

Anyway,today's offering is done on greyboard and I am entering this for Just Us Girls challenge #248 Bird here

I was inspired to do this as the lovely Ruth and Silvia,who both create the most wonderful art,used gingko leaves in two of their gorgeous images. As I didn't have any gingko leaves ( I didn't even realise the trees grew in Europe ) I hunted for a stencil and eventually found one. The lovely Silvia has now kindly sent me some real gingko leaves so I am going to use them now as they are far superior to the stencil :)

Paperartsy and crafters workshop stencils,fresco paints,dina wakley stamps,frantage,posca pen.

Hope you like it

  1. Of all her stamps, this bird is the cutest of all. He seems to lend his cuteness to all sorts of artistry.

  2. This is wonderful Donna.. in this red you even can think of poppy -ginko...

    ( my favourite team is out -- I am sad!)

  3. Delicious - bright and fresh, and the poppy-gingko is great (Susi's nailed it!). Sorry I've missed a bit... off for a browse and a catch-up.
