Stuck with Peacocks



The sketch at Stuck! prompted me to use the bird paper from my Counterfeit Kit.
I had 2 photos of a peacock we saw in Greece.
The main problem was the blues in the peacock and the brown tones of the 7 Gypsies Aviary paper.

My backing strips were a mixture of brown and blues.
My embellishment corners and edge strip were brown.
The wooden camera on the far LHS has a blue mottled centre and drips of Tattered Angels mist cover the brown section.
My title overlaps the photos.
 In all these ways I have linked the blues and browns.
As I really love these papers I left as many birds facing out as I could manage.
