'Feathered Friend'
by Tammy Klingner

Hi Chippy Fans.

Tam here today to share my latest with you....

It's called:

"Feathered Friend"

So important to scrap our family pets.

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:
"Feathered Friend" Title
"Geometric Arrows"
"Assorted Arrows"
"NEW Aztec Feathers"
"Tree with Sparrows"

I coated the "Geometric Arrows" and "Assorted Arrows" with black acrylic paint.

To the "Feathered Friend Title" I applied white gesso and then added a teal coloured acrylic paint to the top part. 
Whilst still wet I applied yellow acrylic paint to the bottom and then blended the two colours in the centre to achieve that green colour.

I really love that ombre effect and so simple!!

I selected the colours as these are the colours of our pet budgie 'Milo',  as the photos are black and white, I felt it important to include his colours.

I even included some of his feathers - don't worry I didn't pull his feathers out, they were in the bottom of his enclosure! Lol.

I followed the same technique as above with both the gorgeous NEW 'Aztec Feathers' and the little bird from the 'Tree with Sparrows'.
I just added in some swipes of black ink and some pen marks.

How GORGEOUS are those new feathers? So much intricate detail!

Finally I painted a couple of the smaller frames from the "Polaroid Assorted Frames" with white gesso and then stamped some random triangular shapes on them, before tucking them into the layers.

That's it from me today, I'll see you next time.

Until then you can find me on my BLOG.

Luv Tam
