(Tropical Lime Finches- Mar. 30, 2017- Measures around 24.5 x 17 cm.)
Materials: White card stock, stamped boarder, scraps of used grocery lists as background, birds created using scraps of a magic eraser box, fios ads, and marker/jell pen. Ground and nest created from scraps of fios ad.
I've been talking a lot about the collage pieces done using scraps of Magic Eraser box. Tropical Lime Finches is the final collage in the collection.
I sort of just found an idea within the shapes of some paper scraps.
Lime Finches are obviously imaginary birds.Though I called them finches, these birds aren't small, an adult female may stand 2 or 3 feet high. They have very large feet, decorative head feathers, and curved beaks.
They make their nests from stones and large twigs, building it on the earth, sand, or in rock crevices behind shrubs and large bushes within a tropical environment. This is a picture of female tending to her chick.
