Canary Green

 

Last week I was in my green caravan in the very green Lake District surrounded by the green of the woodland outside and Cartmel Fell.  Frida my lovely Cyber Green VW Beetle was with us fully recovered from her traumas the week before.
 Did all this greenness help me with my tag ?  A bit.

It seemed right to use my leaf punch and all the green papers I had stashed, but that was as far as it got ideas wise.  In the end I layered up card, paper, wire, some brads, added my green Doodly Bird, put him on a perch but then decided that he would not like it in a cage because as you know all my Doodly Birds have the run of the house, so I pulled him outside the bars so that he can fly about if he wants to.

Hope you all have a good week and thank you for your lovely comments last week on the Doodly Birds touring round the country in their caravan.

  15. I love your whimsical doodly bird, and agree that he should be free to fly about. However, I hope he makes your tag his home, because it's beautifully designed. I was only in a caravan for a few days during my family's holiday, but loved it. Being out in the country definitely influences your work. My "green" tag was influenced by the caravan holiday as well. However, I'm having trouble with my 6-year old lap top and my iPad won't let me post pictures, so I'll need to borrow my daughter's lap top this afternoon to do my posting. Blessings!
