Let Your Heart Be Light!

Hi Linnie Bloom Fans!! This week I was lucky to get to work with Linnie Bloom Bird Shapes! I LOVE them!! 

This piece was inspired by an old vintage Christmas card I found on Pinterest.  I loved the old fashioned street lamp and wonderful Christmas robins.  When I thought about my Linnie Shapes, I knew the birds could make the piece really pop! 

Using spray on the canvas pieces makes wonderful color! Sprays really stand out on linnie shapes! First,  I cut a piece of paper to match the shape of the bird wing.  I put it onto the canvas and held it in place with spray bottles, (I just needed another hand!!)

You can really see how crisp the line stays with spray!! No bleeding at all! 

I did the same on the other side with blue spray!!

And this is a final bird with some pen work and rub-ons for details! 

The paper branches really curl up off the canvas. I just nestled the birds right in!

Thank you all for joining me today!! I hope you really enjoy playing with your Linnie Bloom Mixed Stitch Shapes and Canvas!
