Gingersnap Creations. I made this for the Random Redhead Challenge #55: Quotes. Since books and text are inspiring us this month, I decided to use a quote from the author, Charles Dickens, I only ask to be free. The butterflies are free.
I was leaning towards Maya Angelou's I know why the caged bird sings, but I really wanted to use this beautiful Victorian Fairy image from Altered Artifacts. When I discovered Mr. Dickens was providing me with the perfect quote, my imagination took flight.
5 x 7" canvas panel painted with Adirondack cranberry acrylic paint, followed by pink paint, then a thin layer of cranberry again (so that some of the pink shows through)
Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix Caged Bird die: cage cut from grunge paper and distressed with Black Soot ink; then covered with Perfect Medium followed by Perfect Pearls in Pewter and Green Patina and finished with a spritz of water from the mini-mister. (Unfortunately the rain forced me to take an indoor photo so you can't see the shimmery metallic effect.) Snap on top; gray pearls on bottom.
Public domain photo of Charles Dickens cut and placed on script paper behind the bird cage.
