Theme Thursday~

This weeks theme is birds~
I created a nest for a glittered silver bird which I gave baby blue rhinestone eyes to.... the nest was created using two pages from a diary written with blue ink-dated in the 1900's. The egg itself is an ostrich egg that I got at an estate sale for .10cents. (photo at the bottom shows what it looked like before) It was cracked, so I just broke off the top bit and worked with the bottom part of the shell~
The shell was painted white (to hide the previous decoupage) and then completely covered with glitter inside & out! I created the party hat added a baby blue feather and taaaaaaa~daaaaaaa "instant cute"

(before photo) You can see more Theme Thursday art here.

Beautiful, handmade art. Perfect for this week's challenge. (have you ever seen Australian emu eggs - huge - made into pieces of art. The eggs are the most beautiful deep blue with very thick shells. I imagine they are a crafter's dream!!)
