I love these crazy birds and their wilful expressions. In real life, I find them to be crazy-scary, but such fun to watch and I love hearing their cries and squawks at the seaside.
I made a journal page with two of them, standing on the wooden groynes, and one of the sentiments:
I coloured the images with my Copic markers and added a few white Posca pen highlights. Once fussy cut they were put aside while I made the background. I stamped the Crashing Waves stamp from AALL & Create with Versamark and heat embossed with white powder. I then used various Distress Oxides spritzed with water, and smooshed the stamped background into it to pick up colour. White paint splatters were added. I doodled a border and added some black circles using the Roundly stamp. I made two cuts in the waves to slot the wooden stumps through. The seagulls were adhered on top of the stumps and the sentiment cut into strips and adhered.
