~ Biddy Birds ~ Want2Scrap chipboard and Crafty Secrets

Another post today for Want2Scrap! Some delicious chipboard flourishes.........

I slopped on the white acrylic paint and sanded a little...

A few pearls, which are my favorite things ever, to splendify it.
(I just made up the word "splendify")

The cute row of little biddy birds come from Crafty Secrets' Birds and Blossoms creative scraps. They're so fat and funny, cute and gossipy-looking.

For the top trimmings, some soft tea lace, a paper doily, twine, trinket pin, and a rosebud.

Skipped the sentiment, because I felt those gossipy biddies shouldn't have any words put in their mouths. teehee!!

I tried "clean and simple" for this card. epic fail.
So I give up, and will go back to the cluttered look.

Well, for the past two weeks maybe, my creative-brain-juice (some people like to call it mojo) ran away... and I discovered, when something really wants to run away from you, you can't force it to come back.

So I laid back, took it easy on the crafting time, studied hard, practiced tons, did lots of graphic design work (check out Laurie's, Tammy's, and Pattie's blogs), cooked some nice food for my family, ate ice cream {MY FAVORITE} and accomplished lots of other things.

Then today all of a sudden it came back. IT = creative-brain-juice. YAY-HOO-WOO! So I hope I will have more to share in the coming days.

thanks for putting up with me and my chatter-box today.
