Ok, here is my first post on here. (My sis got me on here  Smiley ) and I'm so nervous I'm going to break a rule or something.  I'm pretty certain this would go under the Paper Craft section.  If I'm wrong, please be gentle!  Undecided

This is a collage that I made because the area above my couch was bare.  I used tea stained paper as the birds.  



Other materials that I used were paint and wall compound for texture.

I love the way the tea-stained birds look against the blue. Hmm, I have an empty space above my bed, maybe I should use that for inspiration! It looks great. Smiley

I did that while the compound was still wet.  I just used the end of a paintbrush to make the swirls.  This was really fun to make.  If any of you make something like this, I hope it turns out well and you have fun  Smiley
