I've gone through like 5 gluesticks this week...

Here's my go at the challenge!


The materials I used for this were black string, scrapbooking paper, cut up cereal boxes (for stability) and pigment inks!


I made the bird by tracing another watercolored bird I made the other day onto scrapbooking paper, then cutting it out and using a sharpie pen to draw all the details. Next, I used a little bit of watercolor to make the body a little bit greener, then colored the edges with a blue stamp pad.

For the frame (which turned out surprisingly like a matte board), I just used 1.5" strips of cereal boxes and glued them together to make an 8"x8" frame. I then just used a gluestick to paste the scrapbooking paper to its front. Cut out the center with a razor blade, and voila! A frame Smiley The "cage bars" are just lengths of black string attached to the back with hot glue, evenly spaced.


The raindrops falling off the bottom are merely cut out of a thicker scrapbooking paper and edged with a black inkpad, then glued to the strings which were then glued to the back of the frame!


Here's a pic of the back...NOT CUTE! But it gives you an idea as to the construction of the thing.

I hope you like it!!  Grin

Really nice.  I thought at first that you had used corrugated card stock for the back of the frame.  I like the string for a background.  Great work.

This is wonderful! How beautiful. I think if you glue some more scrapbook paper to the back it will both look more finished and lessen the chance of the strings being pulled off.
