See it, Pin it, Do It

When I saw that Fiona was running this new feature on her lovely blog here.  I knew I wanted to join in.

I am taking part in The Documented Life Project (see my earlier posts for details) and I have been pinning things like a fiend for inspiration for my weekly tip ins.

I loved this pin here when I saw it and knew I wanted to do my own version of it for one of my tip ins

Here is my version.  the background is layers and layers of collaged bits, inks and paints, I just kept piling on the layers until I was happy with it.  I drew out the bird shapes and wings on papers I had made using my gelli plate and stuck them on and outlined the edges.  I loved the words which I stamped with one of my tiny alphabet sets and then tipped it into my journal using the bird and bird cage washi tape.

Hop over to Fionas and have a look at this new feature of hers.


  1. Your page looks great Suzy. I see the term "tip ins" quite a lot, must investigate. Looks like that gelli plate was a good investment. Thanks so much for joining in. I've added you to the board now.

  2. oh that's lovely Suzy! a great page anyway! but a lovely take on the original as a prompt.

  3. Oh now that's very pretty. I think I prefer yours to the original actually. :)
