I love buying pattern paper but am so bad at using it all up. I started today with a sketch from Mojo Monday #255 and bold colored pattern paper. After much cutting and re-sizing I ended up muting the paper with a soft coat of sandal acrylic paint.
I coordinated my lovely bird and flowers to match the paper tones. The bird flowers and sentiment are from Our Daily Bread Designs (Simple Things, Sing to the Lord)
