Birds of a Feather ATC

I did up a quick ATC for my group ATC for Beginners, this past weeks challenge was to use wording or text or music for your background. So being the moderator I thought I should do the challenge as well to set an example. I used a French script stamp then inked the edges , stamped the branches, collaged birds on the branches, chalked around the birds, glued a feather at the base near the bottom and at the top I set the eyelets and added some fiber for interest. Not to shabby I say.
This time of year reminds me of the Alfred Hitchcock movie " The Birds". The other day I heard this rather loud chorus of birds and looked in the backyard and the one tree was full of black birds or crows and they were cawing and cawing. Reminded me of the movie and was glad I was inside to watch the goings on.
The leaves are falling and everything is very colourful but the nights are very cold now.
I don't really like winter, this means multi layers of clothing and I will be cold til at least July.
So keep warm everyone and my next post I will be showing you some gingerbread shelf sitters I cut out and painted.
Until then keep the home fires burning.
