Spring decorating/Mixed Media Monday~

Here is a little something that I'm going to have displayed for Spring... I made this piece for Mixed Media Monday using this weeks theme of: Purple & gold~ I used a snap shot of my grandson when he was 5 months old... (he is a big boy now at the tender age of 11 months) I love how he had his lips in this photo, I thought it looked like a little baby chick. Soooooo I made him into a golden baby chick sitting in a chocolate eggshell surrounded by grass & purple grapes~ I used yellow tissue paper and the blunt end of a thin paint brush to create each little feather cluster. I completely covered the body form (illustration board) front & back.
