All U Need is LOVE!

Here is a 3 pc canvas, each panel is 4"x4". 
Background is book paper, paint, ink, stamps. 
Letters are chipboard from all different manufacturers -painted black then distressed with Ranger Perfect Pearls in pewter, heirloom gold, and green patina. Shading and highlighting is done with Faber-Castell India Ink Pitt Pens.
Bird die cuts by Tim Holtz and Spellbinders cut from chipboard with cork wings. Bird cage is a Spellbinders die cut from scrapbooking paper and painted silver.
There will be a step out on the Frosted Designs blog on August 26th that shows how I created the birds. Hearts and birds are distressed with Ranger Crackle Paint. The style of this project was inspired by Stephanie Ackerman - I just love her work - hop on over to her blog and have a look!
I am linking up with Dina Wakley for her August Out of the Journal project week 3 - hop on over and see what others have created!
Thanks for stopping by!
I appreciate your comments!
