My bird house is done.  How do I know it is done?  Because I am out of ideas as to how to make it better.  Simple as that.  This bird house was made for a swap on the Embellished Circus yahoo group.  I highly recommend this group to any aspiring mixed-media artist out there.  They are an incredibly talented group  – I was very flattered to be allowed to join. 

Now for more about the bird house.  This is a miniature non-functional bird house decorated with paint, paper, markers and watercolors.  I chose a vintage Paris map and added the sentiment “I just flew in from Cleveland and boy are my wings tired”  in french. Okay, so it didn’t translate exactly, but the general idea is there.

 Oh no! I just thought of something to add!  Better send it off quickly!

 Enjoy and, as always, let me know your thoughts.
