I created the blue flowers from die cutting patterned paper, then watered down some Denim paint and just lightly brushed it over the petals. I made the nest with Spanish moss and moss purchased at Joanns. The tiny eggs which are the true size of hummingbird eggs were created with Fimo Clay and painted with Oceania. The Dusty Attic Soot colour was watered down a bit and using a toothbrush, I flecked the black paint on them for a speckled look.
I clustered some Dusty blooms with my handmade blooms. The leaves are also from Dusty Attic.
The Ornate Corner was treated the same way the String chipboard was done.
Here is a closeup of one of the curled back ends showing the mix of flowers. I wanted the blue flowers to have a painterly feel. Like watercolors.
The word Discover, taken from the Words #3 pack was treated the same way as the other pieces.
Finally, this is just a closeup of the photo and frame. I die cut some tags to place behind the framed photo.
