*** BIRDS ***
--------------- they're everywhere! ---------------
or at least, they will be
My favorite magazine in the world arrived with a cute birdie on the cover...
...but the instructions to make them were way too much trouble for me. So I re-invented a process that suited my lazy style
Instead of carving a linoleum and printing it on some kind of
fancy paper I have no clue about, I used printed scrapbook papers (a cardstock weight) and did a little greeting card recycling as well for my papers of choice.
I don't make for a happy hand stitcher so I used a machine blanket stitch to hold them together.
They of course started out like those in the magazine...
...but soon I decided they needed tail feathers.
They also soon lost their button eyes for sequin and glass bead eyes...ahh...shiny!
...shake your tail feathers!...
|I'm trying to get their wings to stick out a bit by gently curling them without creasing the paper.|
Take creative flight!
