Say What?

Blue Bird's call

I tried  a little different technique with this birdie.  Instead of cutting out individual puzzle pieces of paper and fitting them together, I layered pieces one on top of another.  So, that means that I cut out the entire bird shape from the tan underbody of the bird, then added the pink on top (although I cut around the beak and left the tan layer underneath showing through), then the branch, the blue for the upper body and the pink for the feet.  It's kind of cool, because the birdie is in relief against the background.

I also found a pattern in the paper that looked a bit like an eye, and cut out around it and added it on top.  I don't know if I like that or not, but paper cement is permanent, so it's a-staying.

At some point, I'm going to have to get a photo of all of these hanging together.  They look really nice as a group.

A continually growing group...
