DREAMING WITH TH DRAGONS IN RUST LAND!!!!!

Hello my Lovelies sorry I've been posting lots, this is my last post till I get back, I promise..
Well I had so much joy creating my tag, my wonderful Cuz Miss Julie Ann picked this weeks challenge, RUST and the letter O..
I'm entering this into the challenge here, have a look and see the wonderful  work created by the design team..
SQUAWK I'm crazy about rust, so I looked in my trusty tiny dictionary, when I read Ocher I knew this would be my word, love that color..
I googled images of it and was so surprised to see all the different things that had ocher in their tittle, so there started my dreaming..
Sorry for the lighting it was a wonderful dark rainy  day, it makes me very happy, I know everyone tells me I'm crazy, I like to think I enjoy the simple things....

 I started with a piece of my rusted cotton,frayed all the edges, found all the stamps I had to use and stamped them in gathered twigs, I did a bit of coloring with my copics..

You can see some of the rusty chicken wire with curly cues,, I used to hang it and added some strips of ribbon I tore up to dangle..

For my letter I colored a small wooden block with rusty hinge, then dripped some rust crayon and stamped my wax stamp which just happens to be an O added some Inca gold over the letter.
There is a bird called Ocher which is two tones of brown and yellow around his eyes..
The Ocher butterfly is spotted blue,brown and white



There is a Tribe in Africa that paint themselves in ocher clay around where they live, I just happened to find this stamp ( Tonniece gave me 3 black ladies, NBUS ) which look exactly like this tribe, amazing.
I love it when a plan comes together, :O)....

 I had to add a nest made from a tiny grapevine wreath filled with the threads I frayed and colored the eggs (beads) as I imagined they would look..

 There is also an ocher mushroom and a beautiful ocher starfish which I had to make, I cut it out inked it with rusty hinge, added some white dots with my sharpie and added gold stickles it were still wet when I took the pics..

I put it on an old piece of cardboard picture backing, added some glue and poured some rust powder I got from the rusted chicken wire and some rusted clay from Little Rock Arkansas all around the frame...
Okay I'm off to bed, were off early for our trip, I'll be taking pics of the ATB cottage on the deck up there...
Thanks so much for stopping by my nest, your visits mean the world to me. See you all when I get back  ((( BIG HUGS ))).

                                   Wings together head bowed,
                                                NAMASTE!!!

You are so clever creating the rusty fabric and the rusty frame behind is absolutely fabulous! I love the stamping too and the beautiful 'O' that you created too. The starfish is wonderful too! Hugs, Anne xx

Beautiful!
The colours, the sweet bird and that adorable nest with the beads fooling us into believing they are eggs, you are so clever.
