"Feather Your Nest"

A Journal Page
(Click to see the details!)

You know that I love vintage images as much as I love color. So when Marsha, Tumble Fish Studio @ Deviant Scrap, introduced a sheet of images called Twinkle Toes,  I just had to use one of the fabulous dancers on this sheet. Since one of the swap themes for my art group is "nest", I immediately pictured a lovely blue fairy wearing a fabulous nest for a hat, and couldn't resist adding the cat and canary for just a touch of tongue-in-cheek humor.

Hope you have a day filled with color and love!

It's Sunday night and time for my color fix! I was drawn to the lady because she's not a skinny model, but the "full figure" most of us are these days. There are so many tiny details to see in this, that it took me a few minutes to see the bird nest. Of course, you know I was drawn to the kitty next to the birdcage. Yep, so many things going on in this beauty, I'm headed back to find more things I'm sure I have missed.

You have me trained: if it's Sunday evening, it's time to meet at Terri's!

Terry, what a lovely and colourful (yes and fun!) page this is! I wonder if the cat's love is mutual? The bird does look happy that the cage is between her and him... hehe

Terri, Your ability to stuff a creation with so much gorgeous detail {{{and color}}} is just stunning!!! Beautiful words you used on this piece. The inclusion of the little cat made me grin...could he be the cat that swallowed the canary? Say it isn't so! Xo, Sue
