This month's theme on the Flickr group
I immediately knew I wanted to make one of those cute little
bird's nests made from wire and beads.
I googled and found a great tutorial on a blog called
Inside as well as the wire and bead nest, I adhered some glass
pebbles - which perhaps look a bit like some more eggs?
There's also a used postage stamp with a bird on
and a little bit of twine around the edge.
The outside of the box I textured to make look like a tree's bark.
This was created with several layers of ink, paint, glue, more
ink and paint and a final layer of crackle glaze.
The gold bird at the bottom is cut from shrink plastic
from the Tim Holtz 'Caged Bird' die.
Can you see his beady eye - lol!
I enjoyed making the little bird's nest so much
I made another for the drawer pull.
Swap partners will be announced on 10th March
so I'll soon know who my little birdy box
will be flying off to!
