A couple of months ago I was helping a friend redecorate her bedroom. Based on the cool stuff she had, including awesome bedding in black and tan, we decided to run with something french-themed. That, combined with the fact that she loves birds, gave me the idea to create this piece of art for her + her husband for Christmas. It's a 14x16 canvas done in acrylics. It doesn't show up too well in the photo, but there is some work on the background: I wrote the words "j'adore" and "ami" in zinc white. And I stamped on some fleur-dis-lys in titan buff--which is just a hair darker than the background. I then outlined the fleur-dis-lys with white caran d'arche. Excuse my french spelling, by the way!
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday!
