Over at Project 52 they have a multi medium challenge going on. This is my take on it.
I made the paper mache bird. I used a ceramic piece as my mold and then cut it in half, pulled it off then mended it back together. Used Coffee Shop and Candlelight Glimmer Mist. Then a pale yellow acrylic paint. Mixed black paint and Coffee Shop mist for the details on the wings.
Made a birds nest out of Wool fiber, twine, wire and grass. Made the stand out of wooden thread spools, and a plastic lid. distressing them with crackle paint. Then of course I added Prima flowers and pearls.
The tags say; mom, wife, friend, art, and of course God. I needed a found item I used the cross charm as my found item. I made the bird to show how staying home with my kids again makes me feel nurturing again :)and the craftiness of birds and their nest represents my artistic side.
I made another book as well :) This one was made out of a Dictionary
