Art...not the kind you find in a museum but the blue-gold macaw kind. Art is a large South American parrot with blue top parts and yellow under parts. He's a member of the large group of Neotropical parrots known as macaws and the last of my bird pages in the Bloedel Conservatory of my Vancouver album. Yes the last. The birds are done. :) You've been very patient. I just wasn't able to choose between them so had to do them all.
The sketch is the September single page from Stick It Down, designed by Purvi. I like that the sketch suggested a variety of papers for the horizontal bands. What a great way to use of some leftover paper pieces. I just dug through my scrap treasures to find colours that matched Art and his surroundings.
Stick It Down also publishes a great double-page sketch as well as a fabulous card sketch on the 1st of the month. This gives you all month to design your creations. You should try accomplishing all three this month. Each will give you a chance to be selected by the Design Team as a guest Designer next month.
