°°°TIME FLIES°°° Altered Book Pages

Wishing a happy Friday to all visiters from

 I used Iridescent Bronze from Golden

- I so love this Bronze divides in a gold part and a patina part when it comes in contact with water- so gorgeous- you can see the cool effects here - it's just awesome.

The bird is handdrawn very quickly with Stabilo Mark It All and the pencil lines were defined with clear water to activate the pigment. A little bit of stamping was done and a few accents with watersoluble crayon were also made.

all the other little birds are cutouts from an old book and collaged on.

Of course the pages are meant for

Art Journal Journey

Altered Buchseiten mit Stempeln und einem handgezeichnetem Vogel, ich habe Iridescent Bronze von Golden verwendet, das sich im Kontakt mit Wasser in einen Gold- und einen Patina-Anteil teilt und somit richtig  tolle Efffekte damit erzielt werden können. Ich liebe diese Farbe. Die anderen Vögelchen sind aus einem alten Buch ausgeschnitten und aufgeklebt. Ein paar Akzente sind aufgestempelt und mit wasservermalbarer Kreide aufgebracht.
