Sing, Bird, Sing. by Alison Hall

Hi, Alison here again. This time I've been playing with mini canvases, Claudine Hellmuth Studio paint & wax.


I started off by adding some texture to the mini canvases, with some Viva Terra. When this was dry, I painted them with two shades of Claudine Hellmuth Studio paint, then blended them with some blank canvas Studio paint. Once they were dry, I stamped the script from Calligraphic Mat 12 with smidge of blue paint.

I melted some natural bees wax in my project pan, in the melt pot, then brushed some over the mini canvases. I stamped the little birdhouse from Birds of a Feather, and the bird & phrase from Birdsong Elements, onto music sheet, cut them out, then used the melted wax to adhere them to the canvases.


My base is a piece of corrugated card, that I painted with the blue Studio paint, then I adhered some torn music sheet with some melted wax.

Finally, I used strong glue to attach the canvases to the base, then attached a piece of Ranger lace chain with some metal brads, as a hanger.

I had a lot of fun making this piece, thanks for looking! xx
