Musical Bird Duo Mixed Media

For this post I photographed the progress to show my layer work in response to Butterfly Effects making layers.  You can see their website button in the right hand column to get information about their weekly challenges and inspiration. 

This is my first time working with their prompts.  I made this by first scribbling with a gold paint pen then going over it with a twinkle watercolor wash followed by sketching the girl cutting her out and applying her and the bird.  I added scrap paper details and finished up by adding line details with Pitt brush pens and Prismacolor fine line markers.
