SOC first post!!

First journal page for SOC! I have a few pages left to fill in this big journal so I decided to go ahead and use them for SOC! I started with some yellow watercolor on the page. I then added the aqua which turned a little more green because I forgot to seal the watercolor. Happy mistake I think.

I then added some drips of paint and used a squirt bottle to make it run more down the page. I added yellow paint through a feather stencil. After that dried I added the white dots with paint and traced the outline of the feather with a black pen. I then added the birds. I drew them on with a charcoal pencil and painted them in. They do have a bit of shimmer to them.

I added a stencil here and there with Stazon ink. I wrote "a little birdie told me" in the pink with a black pen. I hope you like it, now I' m off to go look and see what everyone else is doing!! Thanks for looking!
