After a long day of work, I thought it would be nice to unwind a bit and get crafty! To get the mojo flowing, I went to one of my go-to sketch sites and found this fun little number:
This sketch was kind of tricky and a little complex for my tired brain, but after a little tinkering, I came up with something that satisfied my creative itch.
This beauteous little folk bird is part of the July Kit of the Month by Unity. For those of you who know my creative style... you probably know that I LOVE anything folk! It makes me feel all warm & fuzzy inside. :)
I used some of my coveted Pink Paislee paper & paired it with some red felt (cut with a Nestabilities die & my Cuttlebug), a vintage button (from my dh's great grandmother's button tin), & some black twine. The little decorative pins are from Fancy Pants & the twill is old SU twill that I've had for eons. I aged everything with a bit of Ranger Distress Ink. The sentiment is a rub-on from Creative Imaginations.
The black die cut panel is embossed using a Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder & coordinates really well with the patterned paper. It's there. I know you can't see it, but just trust me on this one. ;) Oh! And my bird is colored with Copics.
Thanks for coming to read my ramblings. I'm getting slap happy from lack of sleep & need to get my buns in bed. (My boys were up past midnight last night, attempting to 'camp' in the back yard with Daddy... & I had to get up for work at 5 am.) Nite!!!
