The Boids

I've received my share of the Bird Swap off FaPATCs. The top one and bottom right are printed fabric, and the bottom left is an origami crane on a highly textured and painted background.

Edit 22nd August; Faye who made the Origami crane has sent me the link for the background technique.

This little fellow was embroidered for the "Travel the World" wall of ATCs at a Belgian Craft Exihibition. I was asked to do something that represented Spain, as up to now I am the only one sending from this part of the world. I decided to do a series on modern Spanish artists; Miro, Dali and Picasso. Not copies of their work, but in their style. I've had this little fellow sitting on my desk for a week now, and have grown rather attached to him, so I think I'll keep him, but I need to get my head down and do the others.

  2. Oh, so that's what it is? Now I had the idea it was an Oozlum Bird, going to a party in a red hat....LOL...but I haven't quite figured out what the
    little blue bit that I put on the hat is supposed to be...
