WELCOME BIRD

Hi everyone! Before I go on I thought that I would point this out to you all, if you already know about it just ignore my 1st paragraph!  With the new Blogger photo upload we are now automatically given a Picasa album.  Did you know that the albums defaults are enabling anyone to copy your pictures?  What is more annoying is that if you delete your Picasa albums the photographs  disapear from your blog too!!!!!  Take a look ~here~ for more about it and to find out how you can ensure your privacy.  Have to say that I am not too worried about my crafting pics but the more personal, family photographs are a different matter!

Right, now thats done, here is a bird hanging that I have been working on lately.  Its one of TANDO CREATIVE'S lovely pieces!..

and it started life like this...


So many ways that you could decorate this but I chose to use Adirondack inks with some BG Lyme Rickey papers.


Lots of embossing on the bird and touches of glossy accents!  This one was a lot of fun!

Thank you all for taking a look today.  Please leave a comment if you have the time as I love to read them, HUGS XXX
