Shut up in a Cage
This is a hanging piece I made for a monthly swap I'm involved in. The bird theme is a favourite of mine. The smaller background consists of various papers with a wash of cream paint. The tree is stamped on tissue paper and glued over top. The larger background is a page from an old phone book glued to matt board and painted over with various Golden paints and glazes. I then stamped the flourishes and filled in the open areas with a white gel pen.
This piece is a 'mate' to another previously made for myself to hang on my new art wall and will upload it soon.
