"Let's build a nest"


"Let's build a nest"

This week I did not have much time for anything besides reading and studying. But I managed to find a few hours to make this tiny watercolor. Its 4" x 4" on heavy watercolor paper.
I was thinking of putting it on a shadow box that has been roaming on my head lately, but that is just an idea. What do you think I should do with it?

  2. Thank you! Now if I could only find a good and cheap shadow box I could make those two birdies a nest!

  4. Maria - I bought a shadow box that is 6.5`x6.5`at the dollar store the other day. If you found one like that nearby, you could just matte it with a pretty matching paper...

  5. Thanks Emily! I also have a bird, gnome, faery, button, tree, bicycle, heels, farm animal ... obsession!

    Deeadra- Sadly all decent dollar shops closed around here and there are few decent art stores here and they tend to be pricey. I had gotten some shadowboxes and other materials good for shrine making through swaps on Craftster but that is not an option right now :( The closest thing I got are some cigar boxes

  6. Well maybe I could send you some? I might not be able to find 4x4's, but I could definitely find some slightly larger? I love shadow boxes...
