FEATHER YOUR NEST....and i'm obviously on a roll!

I have a good customer that is redoing her bathroom and wanted something special for this one smaller wall. I went with her botanical theme and quickly twisted it into a bird *botanical* theme - birds are my new love!
Well, not exactly 'new' love, I was collecting nests and bird papers last summer but am just now getting to put them to good use in some art!
I assembled this piece in a black shadow box in which I used a beautiful green botanical paper for the background, I used some wonderful egg and bird pictures to go along with a precious Paper Whimsy girl and half of a real nest and a real egg.

I love the way the real nest and egg look in the shadow box.If you look closely at the nest you can see all of the wonderful things the original homeowners used in the building of their home! There's even a small piece of cellophane in there.
Tomorrow I'm anxious to work up a white on white piece! I LOVE BEING BACK!!
