I made this for the 6x6 art swap.
It’s gesso’d canvas that I covered in sheet music and wood stain and acrylic paint. then cut the canvas and folded the flaps in and nailed down. I added some rolls of sheet music and more nails, sticks,  and some jewelry wire. I also added fake moss, a couple of birds I printed and cut with my cricut. The background sky is watercolor paint.

Even your layers have layers!  The details really makes it stellar, gg!  Nails, wire, watercolor, moss, and naural materials!  You are so talented!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Amazing piece!  I particularly like the sheet music elements as that's a fun literal way to convey the idea of songbirds and adds a surreal touch that I love.  The whole thing has a rustic feel to it that I admire as well. I'm sure this will look stunning hanging on your swap partner's wall or wherever else they may choose to display it--great job!
