Week 14 Prompt - "Birds"


Would never have expected this prompt...but I like it! First thing I thought of was Corinne Bailey Rae's song "Put Your Records On"and the line "Three little birds sat on my window, and they told me I don't need to worry."

Here's hoping those birds find their way to my window!

EDIT: oops...had the paper credit wrong--fixed it here: Painted card pink, then with Gesso. Paper is Basic Grey Ghiradelli Square from the Pheobe line (LOVE THIS LINE!); Heidi Swapp "Martha" jewels; assorted sead beads-adhered with glitter glue; trusty black micron pen. Also printed the lyrics and attached to the back of the card (ala the 13Q radio station lyrics cards, Jack! )

You will never believe this, but guess what I am listening to right now??? That CD from Corrine Bailey Rae! I love it. In fact as I painted my card yesterday I had the cd playing in the background and thought of that part in the song too because of this prompt (and my painting has birds by the window) :) I LOVE LOVE LOVE your card though! It's so charming. It is one of my favorites this week. I love the swirls and beads and jewels and the birds. It's all so perfectly put together. :)
