Dragons Dream TIO #110 - Birdsong

Having some blogger issues tonight so hope this will be ok! can't get the layout how I want.

Our Dragons Dream Team-mate Wanda chose this theme - Birdsong, by Sebastien Faulks. I loved the book (and the tv adaptation recently).

I used a jumbo sized tag, and Paperartsy stamps. Coloured the tag with bundled sage and tumbled glass distress stains.

Found an acetate bird under a cushion on the sofa when I was cleaning the other day and decided it would be a great accent, he's coloured with alcohol inks.

I used some red gel pen in the grasses at the foot, to symbalise poppies - I loved the last scene of Blackadder goes Forth when they superimposed the poppy field over the battleground and that was my inspiration for this. Keeping it short today cos of the blogger problems (I had to change setting to the old editor to allow me to write this, hope I can change back and it will be ok when it posts!)

Beautiful tag, Helen, and a big LOL about finding the bird under the sofa cushion, too funny!

Netty said...

Beautifully designed tag Helen. I wonder what else you will find in your x

This is beautiful Helen, I love the poppies. You made me laugh about the bird 'cos I've got one too and I just keep moving it to 'somewhere safe' everytime I come accross it. I've no idea where it is at the moment! lol x

Blimey! I've laughed and nearly shed a tear all in one post! I love that you 'found' the bird under a cushion - all I ever find is squished chocolate or remnants of my art that SWEA has stolen! And I became misty eyed at the mention of the poppies at the end of Blackadder - I love this Helen. Thank you for sharing x
