Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.

Bird themed Altered spools
These are my altered spools for a swap with my online art group, AAWA. I did two because my good friend, Claudia wanted one too when she heard that I was doing a bird theme. She loves anything with birds. The front of the spools will also hold a small picture if you'd like instead of the watercolored bird. The little wire nest with three bead eggs can be removed and worn on a necklace if you add a jewelery ring or clip. I added some fun feathers and some bird washie tape to the back of the spool. The other spool will go to Pam. I hope that she enjoys it! I know I will enjoy my spool that I get in return from Linda because it is bird themed too although different from mine. I will post it after I get it Saturday. These were fun and I think they turned out really cute!
