HOW TO BUILD A NEST





Use bits and pieces of fabric and papers that you love and make a journal page that makes you happy. That's what I did, and it made me happy, and I am hoping to make more. It gives me great satisfaction to use paper and fabrics together, especially vintage. This was all spurred on by that beautiful tag with the bird that the fab Julie Whitmore sent to me with a piece I ordered. I made a copy because the original I want to frame by itself. Nuts, I know, but so be it!Thanks for sharing in my nuttiness, and have a great rest of week!

I love your nuttiness, dear Sharon- and does the same myself :)
And I love your page,--so stunning with that fabric in gold /black- and the green background-the black thread used ,and so beautiful bird tag.
How is February ?

The layering of the different materials is so much like how birds build their nests using all those found fibers and twigs. I love that about this page.

Hi Sharon
I think we can be nutty together - I love being "nuts"! A very yummy bird's nest here with all the bits and pieces that we love to create with including bird images.
You, like me, like machine stitching too I can see!
Thanks for visiting - it is always nice to hear from you my friend!
Sending hugs and love,
Suzy

eek !!! I am mad for this paper, lace, tea dye, free-motion sewing. Course those clay faces are all looking at me expectantly.

Your color section is so spicy and warm.
