Birds & Nests

The newest theme at Tag Tuesday is "Birds & Nests". I do love to watch the birds at the feeders in our backyard. We get a large variety and I keep a birding journal to record what I see. Lots of woodpeckers come to the suet feeder, including two large pileated woodpeckers. Of course, the squirrels, bunnies and chipmunks browse among the dropped birdseed looking for a snack. It's loads of fun to see them all!

I made a few tags for this challenge. I hope that you will make a tag and join us at Tag Tuesday!

For my first tag, I used a sprayed tag and then added a doily, Gecko Galz bird which I fussy cut and some pink SU twine. I also used the word stickers "Fine feathers make fine birds". I die cut a pink tag reinforcement from the Tim Holtz tag die set.

For my second tag, I used a kraft tag as the base and covered it with Tim Holtz vellum. The die cut is from Tim Holtz, the yellow finch is from K&Company and I painted the egg. (I buy flat backed wooden eggs from the craft store, paint them blue and then speckle on brown paint.)

And now my third and final tag - it is made from a tag I covered with patterned paper, Gecko Galz image, bird sticker and a GG nest that I chalked.

Thanks for stopping by today!
