A Bird Song - mini art journal page

Hi, crafty friends!
I was so inspired to create another mini art journal page using my oil pastels and Dylusions paints. This time I decided to use more vibrant colours and to draw a bird by myself :) As you can see, my bird is so simple that everyone can draw :) It's not my original idea, I picked this way of drawing a bird from YT (I am sorry I can't remember from who). 
To prepare my pages I glued down pieces of some old music note sheets and put a coat of white gesso on top of it. Then I used my Dylusions paint, Dylusions spray inks and some of my Golden acrylics paints to create the background.
The quote is actually a Dina Wakley stamp from her Scribble birds stamp set. I used several stencils here (Dylusions and TCW) to add some more details to my background. I also used a Paper Artsy mini stamp with my black Archival ink randomly. For shading, I used my black Faber Castell Pitt Artist pencil. To colour the bird I used my oil pastels and I added some doodling here and there.

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by! Hugs!
