Now this was a very overdue ' BIRDS OF A FEATHER' swap on Inkredibly RT for the very groovy GENEVIEVE PAYNE who was a very patient gal.

Texture paste painted with metalic paints. Sari silk strips sewn to make a background and a nest
for the blackbird that was made with the lovely PATTI'S birdie template.
Phew, that was a mouthfull.
Made some alpha tiles with polymer clay and rubbed them with shimmer powder.
Now to make the most of these school holidays and PLAY !
HAPPY NEW YEAR to all .
Hope 09 holds wonderful things for everyone

Oh Dawnie my address book IS much loved and your photo's are so much more true to likeness than mine. Thank you again dear friend.
I remember seeing that birdie before he had a nest - he looks so at home there. Perfect.
