The Birdies are Done
It seems like I've been making bird for the last month(because I have,) but my birdies are finally done. They're ready to fly south to Louisiana before flying off to their final homes. I'm terrible with sneak peeks so I decided to show you something else I made instead. After finishing my birds for the swap I decided to challenge myself. My challenge was to create a bird themed ornament using several different mediums in the same ornament. Here's what I created. . . .
I used old/somewhat brittle book pages, feathers, a nest, beads and a metal charm. I was pretty happy with the results. I love multimedia crafts but trying to create them scares me. For me it's actually hard to create by mixing medias; I think my brain just doesn't work that way. I don't know how to start or what to mix together. Melinda makes it look easy(check out her blog for her creations and many examples of multimedia art.) Both Val and Melinda inspired me to try creating using multiple mediums. Thanks ladies because I love how it turned out. Now I just need to put up my new little tree and hang all my new ornaments.
