"K2 + Read" was created making a background using spakel, acrylics and shoe polish. I drew a couple of birds in book pages and color them with acrylic paints and inks. Then applied 3D decoupage technique. Painted tree stick with acrylics and wrapped with soft wire. Created a bird nest utilizing two kind of yarns. Created bird eggs and flowers with polymer clay and painted them with watercolor crayons. Used beeswax on top the message and other areas of the background to make it more interesting. Painting measures 12" x 16".
