Welcome

Welcome to my blog! I never really thought I would create a blog untill hubby set up a family one. I started posting to it and was told off for "hijacking" it with my "craft rubbish!" And so the Nerdbird Blog was born! Not sure how much I'll post but I understand that this blogging lark can be addictive!

Art journal - Lots of layers

this weeks lessons have been about layering and image altering. Homework was to create pages with at least 10 layers. I thought it would be hard to do - look too messy etc, having said that I had great fun and got quiet a few done!
This first one I haven't finished yet but I don't know how to finish it off yet
This one started with the image transfer in the middle (which didn't come out as well as I would have liked but there are no mistakes right!!!!
Another image transfer, I have been thinking about Mum alot and this page is about that
Another lesson has been how to paint over a photo to give it a different look this is my first go which didn't come out so well but I am much happier with the second attempt
Here's the orignal next to the painted/altered one
I have never considered myself artisitc (creative yes, artistic no, can't draw for love nor money!) But I am really enjoying learning to play with paint and ink!!! Will have to try some of these things on a LO!

Lovely pages Steph. You have inspired me to do a bit more of mine. Conversely I like the altered LAUGH photo best.
