i love birds. so this weeks challenge for "Dans ma Maison" couldn't have been more me. so much so that i got carried away and made two. I am so thankful to Jan who introduced me to these wonderful challenges, especially when one is sort of in a blank creating mood and shuffling things around without the light bulb going on. here are my little bird collages. i picked black for one of the houses with a bit of white charcoal scattered on the roof for one and beiges and browns with a twig and three dimensional matchbox applique for the second. lots of materials too, puffy paints, wax, embellishments and miniature nest and bird from the craft store. hope you like them.

Fantastic projects

Oh gosh Connie! Both of these are beautiful and I dont know which I like the best. They are very different - the first is very calming (the image is totally adorable) and I love the simplicity of it. The second wakes you up from that dreaminess- the colours are so compatible and I just love the little red bird in the nest.
I'm so glad you felt inspired to take part, but please dont give me the credit - you motivated yourself my friend.
