Altered Postcards



is the theme on SPA which was chosen by the wonderful Sija. Sija is such an inspiration to me and I'm so glad she is hosting this weeks challenge.

First thing you need to do is find a postcard! lol i searched for a while for one before I found these 2 in a local park shop. I used gesso on them around the birds and then painted with acrylics.... easy? no! the gesso kept wiping off with the paint! Think i should have given it a light sanding first! lol
