Craftaway a Sunday - Birds


I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed creating this round robin page. I collected some of my most favourite vintage baby cards and had them copied. I then set out to find birds that could carry them to far-away places. I especially love the look of suprise on the little one's face closest to the bottom of the page. The background is acrylic paint with a grunge look, the egss are printed on old ledger paper and the quotation is taken from an old bird book. I laughed at the descriptions of bird parents looking after their offspring because they really have some of the same issues as human parents! This is my entry for the Craftaway a Sunday challenge.

The babies are gorgeous...the looks on both their faces are fabulous. I love the nest on the upper one's head..and the phrasing is perfect...feed me seems to be the constant refrain of little ones..even as they turn into big ones!!

Oh this is fab, where will those birdies take those little ones I wonder, back to the nest maybe or are they leaving the nest at last!
