Made this for the “end of the school year” gifts for our 2 parking ladies, who are Moms of students that volunteer EVERY morning, rain or shine, to help students enter the building, and always have the most joyful, sweet smiles. Seeing their smiles every morning is one amazing way to start each day, so I wanted to give them something to remind them they make a difference. Started with watercolor paper, gesso, glued down Tim Holtz tissue, added acrylics, stencils (wavy stencil from stencilgirlproducts.com), bird was stamped, painted, cut out, then adhered with sentiment & cheese cloth (for nest) using multi medium by Tim Holtz. Used Dina Wakley's heavy body white paint to add dimension to the sun and bird belly. Added some doodling and wired hanger with beads, then sealed it all with Multi Medium. Blessings everyone!
