Fanciful feathers

Hello Everyone,

Art journal page today... 

I had to make page inspired by Ellen Vargo, she has again shared wonderful tutorial at Paper Artsy yesterday. Her designed stamps are versatile. I've used stamps and stencils from my stash. 
I wanted to combine one more challenge with this, A Sprinkle of Imagination- June Challenge, which has this color pallete

I've used Deep cobalt, Rich Ruby, Seafoam green and Irish cream.
here are some closeup views..

 I started off with ledger paper, you can see glimpses of it in the background. Next layers were - gesso, Brushed Corduroy, Antique linen Distress paints, text stamping, stenciling (TCW -fanciful feathers, well rounded). When the colors were dried, I applied one more layer of gesso on fullpage. Then added my bird

 Ellen has added this text strip on her page, which I loved so much. Visit this post for more details by her.
