ANOTHER CROW LEAVES MY NEST!



I've been participating in a fancy scrap crow round robin. It is so much fun when the new crow arrives and I can see what the others have done to embellish it. It's also a really good time to contemplate what I will do to the bird and any accompanying journal before I mail it on to the next participant. Unfortunately, it is sometimes not so much fun to do the actual decorating. I procrastinated in finishing and I am really late with this one. My face is red, but I have vowed to do better. Anyway this bird is now on the wing to the next participant and I wanted to show you how she looked when she left. I put on the fancy smancy print heart with vintage button and decorated her tag book as shown above. The tag book is a really super idea (I made a little journal for mine) because you can paint it, etc and if you make a mistake you can just substitute another tag. I covered the tag with more of the polyester material I am using to embellish an old silk cardigan I'll be showing you soon - so stay tuned.

I love the crow. I can't wait to see the sweater, too.

Sometimes it`s hard to know what to put on - incase you mess it up ! But you did a wonderful job on it Trish !!
