I simply inked them heavily with brown chalk ink and layered them over elements on my layout. I snipped off the little birdie that sits in the frame and saved him for my next project. I added a birdie sticker mounted on pop dots to sit in the cage.
This next layout titled BARBA chronicles the name Larsen calls my dad. I have used an Antique mini frame here CH324 and covered it in Tim Holtz distressed embossing powder which gives a texture almost like sand. .
I then grabbed a few animals from the Ch animals zoo load CH35 ,inked them heavily and added them to the hot air balloon and hanging from the 6"vine branch CH299, which I have layered over a hambly vine sticker for added interest and depth.
