For The Birds...

I coworker of mine asked if I could make her 4 birds, she has 2 already which are on their own bases; I told her for this I would put them all on one base so she wouldn't have all these single birds standing next to each other. I knew I wanted to incorporate a paper tree and a swing in her sculpture. After creating a sketch of what I wanted it to look like I started on the grass -  I fringed the grass for the base, wish I could say that was my own idea but it wasn't - I ran across the blog of a very talented quiller/paper artist named Suzana Ilic, she has wonderful ideas and creations; I can't believe I just discovered her.

Once I had all the hand fringed grass glued to the base, I moved on to the tree. I had some friends help me figure out how to do the top of the tree, I wasn't sure how I wanted to do it and their suggestions were great, I really like the different paper used for the tree and leaves. I quilled 4 birds in blue, yellow, rose and grape and added some flowers. I think my coworker is gonna love it. I love it, almost want to keep it :)
