Textile Bird Nest & Collage

Textile Bird Nest

If I were a bird this is just the kind of nest I would want in a tree. The nest is cre­at­ed with vin­tage tex­tiles, but­tons and tiny trin­kets and sits inside a vin­tage ladle. The nest is the focal point for a col­lage can­vas I cre­at­ed using vin­tage ephemera and wall­pa­per mom and I peeled from the walls of the old home­stead. If you are a reg­u­lar blog fol­low­er you know how much I love the old home­stead. Incor­po­rat­ing items from this spe­cial place in any of my work always makes me super hap­py.

The col­lage can­vas is accent­ed with small vin­tage but­tons and addi­tion­al items like Scrab­ble tiles, Dres­den trim, mul­ber­ry leaves, a vin­tage ear­ring and beads from a bro­ken neck­lace. The step by step instruc­tions show­ing how I cre­at­ed the nest and tips on cre­at­ing the col­lage can­vas can be found in “Delight In The Art of Col­lage.” An auto­graphed copy can be pur­chased in my online store or on Ama­zon.

If you already own a copy, I thank you and will appre­ci­ate you tak­ing the time to leave a Cus­tomer Review on Ama­zon. Reviews can be left even if you have not pur­chased my book from Ama­zon. As long as you have pur­chased items from Ama­zon your review can be left.
