My Birds Flew In.....


.....to the latest edition of Somerset Home!!! I am so excited to see my Bird Tota for a Child's Room on page 23!!! My friend Martha has a wonderful apron that she created for her classroom on pg 65!! You can check out her piece here!

It is such a fabulous compliment to have work sleected for publication!! It is hard for me to think that other's find my work worthy!! It really gets my isnpirations and motivations recharged and the creativive geers working overtime!

Here is my piece!


Scanning the magazine doesnot do any of the work within any justice! If you happen to be at a newstand that carries the Stampinton Magazines, pick one up and thumb through it! All of these magazines are packed with wonderful inpiration, I just wish that they didn't cost 15.00 a piece!! Just looking is free though!!
Here are some of the pictures that I could not share with you at the time of creation. If you are sending in something for publication , the magazines don't want it to have been seen before! Sorry about the glare on the first shot!

The wings were made out of collaged bits of bright cottons that I fuzed together and then stitched onto a base of paper/fabric. Then I fan folded each wing and tacked it to the brid body with a brightly colored button!

Here is a close up of the bottom bird and the scrap beads that I made to finish it off!
