Wall Art and Birds



Hello!

I'm finding inspiration again and delving through papers, flowers and chipboard that have been hoarded for far too long ... Have you visited Pixie Dust Paperie? Ever bought one of their kits? 'Cos if you have ... you'll know what I mean ... I had a couple of full sheets of paper left over from A Midsummer nights dream kit ... one of which in particular I just loved to look at and couldn't bear to cut ... but finally I did ... it seemed fitting for the new challenge at Pixie Dust Paperie which is to create something with a bird on 
And as it is my friend Dianne's birthday ... I not only created a card for her but also a wall hanging which fits the new challenge at LESSology ... 
This is my wall art ...



The chipboard bird and birdhouse are painted with TH distress stains and I also used some liquid pearls
... If you follow LESSology you will know that every project must have an up-cycled item ... But I wonder if you can guess which is my up-cycled item? Well, actually there are 2 here ...
First off is the heart ...


... Which was an earring ... and my second up-cycled item is the copper butterfly ... which was cut from one of these ...


Yep, plant tags ... I knew they would come in handy one day!
And just to show you that this is on canvass ...



My card also features a bird ...


... cut from one of the scraps I had left from the Pixie Dust kit ...
And here is the complete set 


So if you like up-cycling ... and birds ... why not join in with these challenges ... either way both blogs are well worth a visit ... I promise you that there is so much inspiration to be had ...

I'm off to Lincoln tomorrow to visit my Aunt ... so I wish you all  a wonderful day 

Take care
