I began on the reverse side of a canvas and used tissue tape to cover the outer edges to hide the staples. I then added some texture paste through Tim Holtz clockwork stencil. I changed the colour of the frame at one point but this is how it ended up - I painted it with brown acrylic and once dry - dry brushed gesso over the surface to catch the embossed areas. I then took my wild honey paint and dry brushed again - the colour showing over the white gesso.
Next I used the wrinkle free distress technique to colour some card - far more than I needed of course! The first was just wild honey and scattered straw but on some I then added some browns for contrast. I die cut the bird silhouette out of the wild honey piece and added a little vintage photo around the edges. I also die cut the bird out of mountboard and painted it brown before gluing the two elements together.
