On the Second Day of Christmas . . .

Day 2 is from  Jan LaFollette - a delightfully wrapping featuring 2 Turtle Doves on a birdcage, framed and attached to a piece of sheet music and inserted into a cello bag.  What a delightful page was tucked inside!!
A white background, a painted bingo board, handpainted paper - all layered with 2 birds - the first is cut from tea-dyed muslin with a sweet woven wing, cheesecloth tail and covered with netting.  The second bird is cut from batting and has a silver edging, a polka-dot fabric tail, a rhinestone eye, and adorable little feet/legs made from flower pistils.  There is a wooden bingo marker stamped with a 2 to complete the adorable collage - I LOVE it!

Thanks so much for participating in the 12 Days Swap....the bag you made was indeed precious! I've added it to my bound pages, just like it was a page of it's own. Also, thanks for becoming a follower of my blog. It has been such a pleasure to meet all of you wonderful and creative people!

These are awesome photos of Jan's art. I am so glad you showed them. Somehow I managed to NOT get one, which makes me sick. I'm delighted you are back in blogland. It's been lonely without you here, although I've checked in about once a month.
