My Blue Bird of Happiness

Hi everyone, I'm on the Proxxon blog with a new project today which I am calling my Blue Bird of Happiness. 

Imagine Ink - VersaFine Clair Pinecone
Indigo Blu Stamp
Petaloo, Prima flowers
The Robin's Nest Dew Drops

I began by using the Delta Sander to sand the bird.  Next, I used the Drill Press to drill a hole for his eye and 2 holes for the hanger.

I wanted some decorative details in the wood so I used the Power Carver to carve lines in the body and the tail.

I used Plaid Coastal Texture Paints in High Tide and Largo Blue to paint the bird.  I then painted Seal Grey about the body using a baby wipe to blend the colors.

Next, I added some texture by inking a grid stamp with VersaFine Clair Pinecone Ink and stamped it randomly about the bird.  Then I added a touch of ColorShift orange paint on his beak

Now that the base work was done, it was time to decorate.  I had lots of blue flowers, so I selected some Petaloo and Prima flowers.

To finished, I added The Robin's Nest dew drops as flower centers.

Thanks for stopping by.
