earlier this week i was cleaning up the art room and came across a rubber stamp box to be pitched. just as my hand traveled toward the trash can a light bulb went off in my head. i could make something out of this! quick as lightning i was off to the stash of paper and pile of vintage books to get inspired! and the above is what i ended up creating -- joyful nesting.
the bird illustration is from an old bird book i've had for along time. the nest is torn pieces of vintage sheet music. if you look closely, you can see where i wrote soar, fly free and sing on the leaves of the tree.
for a little finishing touch i added a piece of copper wire, some ceramic beads and an organza ribbon. what a fun piece this was to make. so, of course, now i'm on the hunt for cute little boxes so i can make more. hunt and gather, hunt and gather!! once i've made a few, i'll list them in my etsy shop!!
