I love playing with metal and utee so I wanted to make something bold, in two of my favourite colours (deep pink and aqua). The image in my head was of a picture come to life so I wanted eveything to be bursting from the frame - not sure I really achieved that, but when I put on too many flowers it started to look messy. Oh well, never said I was the finished article - crafter in training more like!
First stop to make a mould using Tim Holtz bird cage alteration die. It took a while to perfect the mould and then even longer to pour just enough utee to avoid going over the top of the mould. It might look like its been damaged in places but that's on purpose - didn't want it to look to perfect and I wanted the bird escaping! I've used Terra and Inka Gold to give the frame a rough look. I wish I'd done something a little different for the bird, but I love the shrink plastic leaves on the branch and the ickle moth.
