nest in a jar




On the forum I visit, we recently had a challenge to create a mixed media piece with a spring theme. This was my piece, It is a nest in a jar. I found this flat sided jar and had to use it for something. I made the nest with raffia and used a skeleton leaf in side the jar. I put one stamped egg (inka) so it stood up in the nest. I also sprinked a little flower soft into the jar for a bit of colour. I stuck the large bird from inka to the outside of the Jar. I glues some floral fabric and a fake flower to the lid,

The hardest thing was photographing it!

    Love this- bet it was a really good size to work with.
