Blackbirds singing........




These two 8x8 pages are for the round robin group "Color me silly" . This month I had Rachelle and her colors were Robins egg blue and cream and she wanted birds...This is what I came up with. Instead of making fabric paper I put the fabric on the paper with diluted glue and I really like the look...It is very layered and has a lot of texture. The birds are printed on paper then sewn and painted...I finished it last night...Tonight I am hoping to make a couple of atc's for a private trade.

I love these, esp. the first one. I don't know if I could come up with such cool combinations of colors and subject.

Melinda - I love, love, love your blackbirds! I want them! LOL@ These are wonderful! I also love your kitty atc above. As far as getting older, I have to agree with everything you said! No wonder I don't like to go camping anymore, it reminds me I'm getting older. :)
