So, what's on my workspace today? The finished result of those little Maya Road bird pages. Sorry, about the blurry pictures, I didn't realize they were so blurry when I was taking them.
I thought a swirly would look nice about where the wing would be, only I didn't have a scrolly stamp, I did, however have a chipboard swirl, which I traced around in black and then colored the shape in in brown. You can't see it, but you can still see the words through the brown, and it's a little sparkly due to being colored over the 'glimmer' mist. I also added a piece of lace for the tail, and a very light gem for the eye.
I also mod podged over the flat parts, so the brown ink kinda spread out over the bird, and you can't quite see the sparkly mist anymore. Here's a close-up (which is also blurry). The back is painted green and has the Yahoo! group name, swap name, hostess name, my name and date. I thought they turned out rather well.
In that first photo you can see a snippet of another chipboard book I'm working on. It's a squareish shape covered with green tissue paper and some brown SU ink swiped over the top.
Go check out Julia and see other people's workspaces today. I love your comments.
