The Newspaper Bird

I am not quite sure what it is exactly but since I've seen this bird I have been hooked. No doubt it is a free blog header from The Background Fairy but still ... there is something fascinating about the bird

Maybe it is the colour, maybe the colour combination, the composition, ...... probably everything and all together. Till now I used the bird in two projects

a matchbox venture

a Christmas tag


but I wouldn't be surprised if it would turn up in some other disguise. Petra.

Hi Petra,
Oh my gosh, I love that little box!!! You do such amazing things with those tiny match boxes! Those paper flowers are fabulous, did you make those yourself, or did you buy them that way? I love how scrunchy they look, such a great texture. Thanks so much for playing along again today!

I, too, adore that bird! It was the image on someone's blog header that led me to The Graphics Fairy! Thanks for the wonderful idea to snag it and use it in one of my own creations!

That image has been haunting me, too! It is perfect, and so is what you've done with it :-)

I love both of your projects. They are both so clever, especially the matchbox. You have a great eye for collage.

I loved that little bird, too! So much, in fact, that he's on my new blog header. The matchbox is such a sweet little idea. Hooray for the Graphics Fairy and hooray for you!

OH MY! I didn't realize that was a tiny little matchbox until I started reading the comments here. WOW! What an amazing project you did with that. Very creative and I love the colors you used.
