I had to mount them on a hanging branch, it just seemed right. Of course I used some random leftover wire that I had laying around for far too long, probably leftover from some household project. I had to colorize in with Ranger's alcohol inks, cranberry. Surprisingly the paper that I used the to make the purple birds was Lumiere and the shimmery essence came through the coat of beeswax. I loved that happy surprise. If you are coming to the class please make sure to bring a pencil and eraser in your kit, I know sounds ridiculous to ask, but you never know. Oh no....does that mean we're going to be doing some drawing!?? Hmmmmmm? I hope to see you there. Email me with any questions.
