Bird obsession and then some

So, as I mentioned in the previous post, I am heavily into making birds in all sorts of media lately. I therefore present you with a huge big one:

Papier mache, and boy did it give me trouble! I never made anything this big in papier mache and my construction was all  wrong because I was too impatient to start, which is why I didn't think it through. But after two days of struggle it came out as I wanted it and I am happy now. The wings were painted by my boyfriend and are not quite done yet, but I wanted to share ;) He made the table there as well and I am completely in love with it. That too still needs a few touch-ups, but I find it great. Not to mention that it was made completely out of found materials (the sides, for example are made from a doll cradle :)) )

Apart from the huge big burdie, I have been totally fascinated by fibre jewelry as of late and am experimenting with it. A few necklaces are done, but I still need to take pictures, and am working on a painting at the same time (in the next pic you can see how I hog the whole living room with my projects galore :)) )

I am rushing to finish it all up, since I am having house guests for the next few days and won't have time for much else but catching up and having craft unrelated fun. 

Be good and see you soon!

Wow! The papier mache piece is fantastic! I imagine it was a bit tricky.
