Birds In The Barn @ Tando

ooopppssss... for some reason I posted this over on the Tando blog but never published it on my own... blonde moment!!!
So here it is, a bit behind but...

Hi folks and welcome to today's post for February's colour challenge over @ Tando.

This months colour chart is a gorgeous selection of lemon, lime, greys and blue.

Here is my creation...

birds in the barn

I used the Mini House Printer Tray, Owls chipboard pieces, Minis Owls 2 and the Leaf Branch With Cut Out Leaves from Tando.

To create the printer tray background colour I used white and black gesso to make grey tones. When dry I then randomly dry brushed DecoArt Colbalt Teal Hue and Green Gold over the top.

I painted the Minis Owls 2 grey, green gold and primary yellow using the DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics. And I used Colbalt Teal Hue and grey for the other Owls.



Using the Tando Leaf Branch with Cut Out Leaves, I cut all the leaves off the branch and painted them green and yellow using quite a thick layer of paint.

I then arranged the pieces in to and on the house frame to create a bit of depth.
