Blue Bird - TMTA


After 2 extremely busy weeks, I am finally able to get back to starting my week off right with some art. I had no idea what to do for the Think Monday Think ATC theme this week which was the color blue and the bird. So I started out with my favorite blue metallic paint and drybrushed it onto an old playing card. Then I used an old phonebook and looked up the words, "blue" and "bird". Then I got into my images and scraps and this is what I came up with.
