Oriental Bird

I am on a bit of a roll this week (or should that be last week????) as my altered tin made the Nautical Theme photo sampler at Theme Thursday - can't tell you how pleased I am, especially as it was my first attempt at making an old tin into something else!

Today at Theme Thursday the subject was 'Birds' - those of you who follow my blog will know I've made quite a few 'bird' things just recently so it seemed silly not to carry on and make another page for my bird journal!

Although for the 'journal jam' I chose the theme 'vintage floral', I thought I might try something a bit different for the challenge.

So here is my oriental bird - I have only done one side as I need to do the other as a progression from the other pages already completed. With this in mind, I thought I'd be better sticking to a more neutral theme, but once I got started I realised that birdie desperately needed an injection of colour! So - on with the pink flowers, thread and fibres! Have not quite worked out how I'm going to make this birdie fit in with the others - if I can't I can see another journal coming on!

(The other birdies I completed for the jam are on my posts from 1st March and 11th February).

Very beautiful! What do you do with them once they're finished - sell them? I think they're amazing.

I love all your birds but this might be my favorite thus far. The splash of red is perfect.
