Years ago I bought some lovely blue paper to make wedding invitations from. Well five years, one wedding and two kids later the paper was still rolled up in my craft corner. So I thought that this would be the perfect time to pull it out.

I started by splashing a bleach and water mixture on a test piece, just to see what would happen. Well it looked like lovely clouds. So I pulled out a full sheet and tried it again.

And of course it didn't look as nice as the test piece. Sad So I did the next best thing and cut up the test piece. I then fraied the edges and glued it to the full sheet and got some lovely textured clouds.

So paper and scissors, check.

Next I did a little sketch of a bird in flight and went to work filling in the bird with stones.

Rocks, check.

cool!  What kind of glue did you use for the rocks?  I bet they're heavy!

It is a lovely picture. And I like the symbolism of a bird made of stones.
