Okay, I sat down to come up with something fantastic and really pushing the boundaries of collage. BUT I put a CD on. It was Ween. Specifically Little Birdy...damn you Ween for making me make tweet art!

In all feathery glory...


Close up and personal


Just taking flight...


I used old wallpaper samples, newspaper, buttons, metal coggs and measuring thingimebobs, a star game piece (for his eye), 2 wooden skewers (for his legs) and some cardboard things I found on the street. All collage, no paint involved. Or scissors!

His body is ripped up paper arranged overlapping to look like feathers.

Grin You gotta smile at him the cheeky rogue!

Thanks, Ween can take all the credit for this...hmm, I wish they toured the UK more, just think what madness could be created in craft form!

I forgot to mention the size of this...huge...it's 21 x 32 inches (it's on A1 board)

The nursery idea is cool, I'll have it framed for my neice...yay!
