Hey Friends, A good friend gave me this tiny nest. She found it in her yard after a hard storm. I'm hoping the Mom and Babes had already left to find a bigger home. I took photos of my Babe, Lillie, holding it, to paint from. She is so sweet and indulges my every photo wish.
I cut this string of paper birds out of some deli-paper I had painted for another project.
I drug a toothpick around and around in some heavy gel for this nest to have texture. And I used more deli papers in the background, along with stencils.
And I'm just showing these 2 photos to NaNaKat 'cuz she loves birds as much as I do.. I've had my moulding saw outside all summer 'cuz it's so crowded in the studio. Wrapped in plastic and a heavy tarp, folded 4 times and clamped with big work clamps, 8 clamps!
But a silly wren got in there and with all this material. I hope she raised some babes without trouble. I never saw her come or go and I passed by at least 50 times a day! Moma Birds on a Mission !!!!
Travel Well (little moma bird)
