Tell me Little Bird ..

7.5" square canvas.
" Tell me Little Bird "
I decided to do a pale coloured canvas
for a change .Using fabric - iron on
interfacing and the material bubbled and shrunk
when i ironed it - which i think gives
it a better effect - and i had no idea the
material would do this on a hot set iron !
The photo is surrounded
by a cut vintage doily stuck with texture paste
and colour sponged on - as it was white .





I then came up with this saying ..
using vintage words and sewed around
them all ..









It was just one of those thoughts i had in my
mind - a bird is free to do what they like -
i guess that is why i love birds and what
they represent . Something which we feel we do
not have at times in our lives .

This is such a beautiful collage Carolyn :) I love the little girl image, which I have in my stash too, and the words are beautiful, and I like how you stitched around them.
Have a Happy Easter and a nice break :)
