My soon to be new niece is due in April.  Her mother, my little sister, found a collage she liked, and wanted to buy.  When she showed it to me, I said, "I can make that."  She was like, "Could you?"  I was like, "Yes, of course!"  So, when she came to visit for Thanksgiving, we went shopping at JoAnne's and she bought some scrap book paper she liked.  I already had the canvas.  And, the rest is history.  I added the carved plastic flower, the branch is from a tree in my back yard, and the bird and leaves are made from some heavy scrap book paper that I had.  The words are just stickers that I decopaged over to make sure they stayed down.  My sister is decorating my niece's room w/birds.  Enjoy.

Thank you.  That verse was on the collage she had picked out.  My sister is going w/a victorian/antique style type room.  Nothing babyish.  I think she plans on keeping that collage on the wall for as long as my niece will let her.  Smiley  Bible verses are very important to my sister.  She really likes the "simple" bird designs.  Nothing fancy.

Aww, that's awesome.  I love that you said "I can make that" then did it!

Willow, when I sent her a pic, she called me and asked if I had a professional make it.  I was like,"Uh no, I made it by myself."  I think, she thinks, I can only sew.  Smiley
