Little birdies

P1070493webI felt so creative making these little bird files, so I wanted to tell you how I made them.  The little birds are called Dreaming Birds from Birdie Brown.


First I printed the image from my Silhouette.

P1070484webNext, I copied the image, broke it apart and filled certain parts with gradients.  I further copied the wings and used them as another layer.  I didn’t want the tail feathers to cut out in three tiny pieces, so I used an offset.


I cut everything out and pieced it together, then colored certain parts of the flowers.  I like how they turned out, and it was a fun project!!
