Mixed Media Monday - Easter








I have 2 pieces this week to enter. The top one is a little bird house made for a friend using a Retro Cafe Art collage sheet. The second was a gold tin the outside is bright and glitzy with alcohol inks, fusible film and embossing powder inspired by the bright shiny foil wrappers of Easter eggs and inside the little assemblage represents Spring wit the birds returning from their migration we hear bird song again i nthe morning and evenining, birds are making nests and the garden is coming alive with colour.

Oh Moira these are just gorgeous - the little bird house is the most perfect shade of blue - and those images - stunning. It really is spring like.

I have blue tits nesting in a bird house - not a pretty house like yours, but a ceramic 'tube' like one. They don't seem to mind.

You have worked wonders with the tin - its lovely to see the birds returning in spring isn't it.
