'Listen to your heart. It knows everything.' ~Paulo CoelhoI know it seems like all I ever use are bird images! I swear, I do collect other things but so often the little winged creatures are just what I'm looking for when I put something together.
There was an old piece of sheet music in a book I found and it was titled 'the fairy wedding'. So sweet! Even though almost all the music notes ended up being covered, I still used it as the base for my collage. The bird is cut from a sheet of printed scrapbook paper, the key is a Tim Holtz embellishment. There is machine stitching around the outside edge of the cardstock and some stamped pieces of scalloped trim.
The flowers are made from circles of paper, spiral cut and rolled up. It's a really fun (and super easy) way to make an embellishment with dimension.
The little brass corners are OLD. I've probably had the bunch of them for 15 years! They make a nice finish once in awhile when I remember that I've got them. I really like the color of the silk ribbon at the bottom- it kind of changes from gold to orange as the light catches it.
Sometimes you just have to listen to where a project wants to go... it knows where it wants to take you.
