The heavy cloud cover throughout the entire day today nearly deterred me from this bird photo shoot, but Miss Hilda, Libby, Elsa, and Effie May got dressed in their finest, so I didn't have the heart to disappoint them by waiting for the sun to shine. I used scrapbook paper to create this flock of fowl from an idea I found on the Family Fun web site. Because I chose to dress my girlie girls in over-the-top flourishes, I used a layer of tagboard in between the two outside layers of scrapbook paper for added support. Tagboard can be eliminated if head pieces and tail feathers aren't added or are less ornate. Templates for three sizes of bird bodies can be downloaded from the Family Fun site.
One week has passed since I announced my drawing that will take place on Monday, February 9 at 8 p.m. so, before time runs out, submit your comment on the "food blog awards results and free drawing" post where there is a list of the prize choices.
