Created ByHand Challenge - Crows

The mystique of crows is always fascinating. They are seen as being clever scavengers and have inspired artwork and poetry. They seemed to need to be in this round robin journal page with the little bat girls. Hmmm.....I wonder what that crow at the top of the page is thinking as he looks down upon the scene below? This is my entry for this week's Created ByHand challenge.

Fabulous entry. I can't think of an image or idea as I find these birds somewhat sinister personally, but you have made them more mysterious. Thank you.

I love the background in this Heather -- there's a serenity to it while containing a hint of menace which is perfect for "naughty/nice" -- the girls are darling, even the wee naughty one!! Crows...they get a lot of "press" for something that can be downright menacing -- and why is it that there are so many more of them around at this time of year?

WOW! This is superb, it should be in one of the Somerset magazines.
I love the different textures to the background, love the girls, and the crow is perfect.
I am thinking he is probably wondering what the heck those kids are doing in my garden, maybe if I swoop down I can scare them off :)

FANTASTIC, what a brilliant theme too, love it. this is great, I think the crow is looking down wanting to make them join him....like a vampire type thing.... (maybe the mood I'm in...lol)
