This little bird sitting on the sheet music looks as if he is getting ready for his singing audition!

This is a class sample created for a mixed media class.

Fabric foundation, Sheet music, seed packet, bird images from a book, music fabric, magazine subscription card, leaf ribbon trim.

The best part was quilting through the paper, it was very satisfying to hear the popping sound as the needle went in and out.

I love this.  My mother is a master gardner and this reminds me of her so much.   My only question is, did you treat the paper with anything before you sewed it down?
