AP April Challenge - Birds

It's time for another Altered Pages Challenge!
{Technically, it doesn't start until Monday, but I couldn't contain myself any longer!! So I'm getting a jump on it today!}

Haven't participated in a challenge yet?
It SUPER easy! Just hop on over to the AP Challenge Blog for the monthly details (2nd Monday every month); create a project using at least ONE image/product from Altered Pages; write about it on your blog & link up to the Challenge Blog!
It's that easy! 
C'mon...join in on the fun!
There's always a great prize package! And sometimes Jean adds more prizes for every day that someone links up their projects! WOW

"She was a nurturing soul"
Ok, so...I decided to approach the challenge a little differently this month & although the theme is Birds, I didn't really "focus" on the birds in my project...I wanted to play at drawing faces & creating a mixed media 11x14 canvas from there. This is my end result & I LOVE it! LOL!! If you want to see more, head on over to my personal blog - My Laughing Magpie! Or if you want to buy it, she's listed in my Etsy shop as well!

Supplies used:
Vintage Bird Cards AP 1790 (collage sheet)
Glitz Papers from Beautiful Dreamer Collection & tiny alphabet (background & title)
Gel Medium (adhesive)
Molding paste (hair)
Acrylic paints (all over)
Stamps (texture, background)
Colored Pencils & Inktense Blocks (face)
Found objects (hair accessories, necklace & broach)
Shredded paper (nest)

Hope you'll vote for me when the voting opens on the Challenge Blog!
Cheers!
