I am a pro-bird crafter! I love the simple silhouette of a cute fat-bellied birdie. So I decided to make a traveling bird fabric collage:
Part of the inspiration for this piece came from a fabulous blog I recently discovered called "A Vintage Journey." It's a blog dedicated to all sorts of lovely art that's influenced byTim Holtz. And the members of the Design Team are incredible! Many of them have been long-time favorites of mine whose work I always look forward to seeing.
The piece I made reflects Tim Holtz because I used several swatches of Tim Holtz fabric and I also used his distress inks to add some depth and dimension here and there. Plus he's created many fabulous stamp sets featuring birds and crowns.
I finished off the piece by stamping a "Fly" sentiment and giving this bird some traveling food (cupcakes are perfect for any scenario life has to offer).
Thinking of birds makes me happy and it also makes me think that maybe just maybe Spring is on the way!
