I can tell spring has really arrived. Suddenly my garden is full of birds...all shapes and sizes, from petite purple finches to bright blue jays, they've all flocked to the feeders and have been feeding up for the arduous task of caring for nestlings.
Certain birds seem to have dominance or priority over others. I've seen this in all the species we've got at the feeders.
Maybe they paid the extra money for the executive lounge.
Or maybe they're royalty and all the other birds let them have first go.
Either way, there's enough for all.
A whimsical trio of ATC's inspiring by the birds I see at my feeders.
Except the owl.
He's there because he's so handsome.
And he makes me smile because he's very pope-ish.
ATC Stand. this comes in a package of three which is super handy because mt favorite Chunky ATC Blanks come in a set of three. What a coincidence! Naw, that Gina is pretty smart. ;-)
And started adding glitter to the crowns.
also wanted a bit of exaggerated shadow under the birds, so using the
birds as templates, I did a light outline around the inside of each bird
cut-out on the ATC where I wanted them placed and then using pencils
and a blender stick, I made a 'shadow' around what will be the outside
edges of the birds.
