Home

Inspire Me Thursday this week challenged us to a) create a piece of art for the home and b) to create a piece of artwork on the theme of home. The framed picture here is made from reused office card and flower and butterfly shapes cut from the same patterned paper from a catalogue as I had used to cover the frame (which I posted earlier when it was still empty). I can't claim any credit for the crafting in the second piece, but its a beautiful piece on the theme of home - a birds nest that we found on the ground fallen from a tree a year or so ago.

Cool idea with the frame! And I LOVE birds nest. Fortunately we usually get one left behind each season.

neat idea for the challenge. bird nests have such a special, intangible quality about them, and they symbolize the idea of home very well!
