Paisley Birds


Paisley birds you say??? I stumbled onto this today. I was working with Basic Grey's fabulous Pheobe pp and realized the bird is quite close to the shape of a paisley. I got out my Technique Tuesday acrylics and warped them a little on my block to make the shape of a cute little chick. I used one of the smaller paisleys for the wing. Drew in the little feet,beak and eye and my little bird was born! Love it when you can create something other than it's intended use!
