Snow White Whistled To Me


The background started as a painted background.  I went over it with watercolors and let that dry.  When I used gesso with the stencil the watercolors mixed to create very soft shades.






Needing some inspiration where to take the stencil next I searched my rub ons.  The birds screamed at me to be used.






Once I added the musical notes I began to think of Snow White and all the little birds that were her dear friends.






A quote from a song Snow White sang finished this journal page.  Perhaps I was drawn to birds and bright colors to counteract this winter thing here…

    She’s lovely, such an elegant shape! And I like the words too (though unfortuantely, I can’t whistle…) 🙂

    I love the combination of colours! for me green and fucshia would be hard but you made it easy, natural and nice to see!
    I also had to quit my job if I had to create an art journal everyday! xD
