Eclectic Paper Artists

My little group, Eclectic Paper Artists, asks someone to hostess every month and choose a project.  Last month Lesley asked us to make a card based on what we wanted to do this spring/summer season.  My choice, which it is every year, is to spend as much time as possible at our house in NC.  Here’s my card:

Now it’s my turn to choose a project for June.  I sent everyone a chipboard shape that they can do with whatever they wish.  This is what mine turned into.  I used the Caged Bird die from Tim Holtz.  I can’t wait to see the others!

Bird Bottle

I found two of these cute bottles in Michaels – at 50% off I couldn’t resist, although I did not know what I would do with them!  On Red Lead’s newsletter they showed some cute little bottles that were altered.  I decided to try that with one of these bottles and I love the outcome!  I don’t have a photo of the bottle before I altered it, but it was just the clear bottle with the little bird stopper in it.

I still don’t know what I’ll do with them but I think they’ll be fine sitting around just looking adorable!
