Christmas bird


I love a vintage-y look but with a modern twist, does that make sense?

This bird looked like it was sitting on a twig while it is snowing.  Paper lacey border along the top, and matted in the same paper as the dark strip.  All layered.  The diagonal chevrons are sparkly adhesive ribbon.  Finally I punched snowflakes, layering the larger one, added them with dimensional foam, topping them with gems.  I like the muted effect and soft colours although that is not my usual palette.

All the papers came from the same paper pad, including the bird.
