I normally wait until the end of the month to show you what I've done for my monthly craft project but since I'm low on blog fodder I'm going to show you a little something I made on Monday.

I think I had mentioned that I bought some wood shapes to make either magnets or ornaments. Well even though I had several on a whim I purchased a few bird shaped ones last Saturday. I got busy with paint, glue and tissue paper and when I was done it looked like this...

I painted the whole thing green except for the wing. Then I covered the entire piece with a green tissue paper. When that was dry I covered the wing with patterned tissue paper. Then I dabbed on some inks here and there and a few swipes of extreme glitter paint. The words were printed out and glued on. I used gold stickles for the beak and finished it off with a gem glued on for an eye. Oh yeah and the white lines for the tail feathers were drawn on with a white out correction pen.

I really liked the way this one turned out. I have two more of the same shape and have another green one started. I'll have to look through my tissue paper stash and see what other colors I might be able to do. I just may have to go back to Wal-Mart and get a few more of these guys. Now I just need to think of some other short sayings that I can put on them. Suggestions?

  6. That is such a pretty little thing - I love the beak. Actually I would like a very colorful one without any words on it...I have a black fridge, so I would like a yellow one with some purple details and that wonderful gold glitter beak. Thank you. (I actually do use my magnets to keep notes and coupons on the fridge - which doesn't mean that we don't forget them...)
