Crafternoons-Have you ever made bird art?

by Suellen Hintz
Used pictures intended for decopauge to make a bird wall art, using brown mailing paper glued to a rigid backing as the background. I used an exacto blade to cut around some sections, used double mounting tape to add 3D dimension. Will frame later as we broke the glass accidentally!

Semi-finished 3D wall art as it still needs to be framed.

    I love this! Did you do something to make the 3D parts stiff, or is the paper strong enough on it's own?

      Lucky you...My friend also lives in Wa. and said the coldest ever. We were there a few times and saw a lot of rain and snow...when my son lived there. Beautiful country and Texas has its moments...

    The bluebonnets are early this year due to the really mild winter--the warmest February on record. I have a son who moved to Olympia, WA last year, and I understand they are having one of the coldest ever. I grew up in Corpus Christi and we didn't have A/C until I was in high school, but that was not by choice! Summers were brutal! Oregon sounds lovely!

      I like birds too, and I've got lots around my house. But I love rabbits, mice, cows, hedgehog, horses, frogs, and most other animals so that's what I'm drawn to in decor. There are always at least two real cats in my life and for years I decorated with a lot of cat stuff but at the start of a move to a new house I decided not to decorate in cats and that's when I drifted to other types of animals.
