So then I got to it with Gesso and covered it all up with two layers of it. You can still see some of the background colours poking through.. Next I gently brushed over it with my favorite colour turquoise paint. I stamped the words including my word for the year explore and popped them along the string. I used a bit of inka gold here and there to highlight a few things like the string and the birdcage and bird.. This was so much fun to do and it really emptied that container... Have you got a container that is overflowing like me?
Just for fun I am going to link this up at
