Just wanted to say a quick, little 'hello.' This is a piece I just finished for a friend. It has a lot of textures from different papers, some silver stars, and the background is stamped with a tree stamp I carved myself.
The stamp isn't meant to have a lot of contrast so it doesn't show up that much. It does add a layer of depth that I quite like.
The birds say "friends" and the french word for friends "amies." These are the two official languages of Canada- although not that many Canadians speak French. Here in Moncton is the exception. Our house is the perfect example. I'm half English and half French, and Jason is half French half English. We speak both languages at home and even more often a mix of the two.
The little yellow bird represents day and the blue bird represents night.
