WELCOME TO THE CONCERT !!!

Hello my lovelies, welcome to the Concert, I dreamed out side my window here.. lots of inspiration from the Dragon Designers.
The Lovely Helen asked us to use Lace with the letter W.
I search my trusty dictionary, as soon as I saw Warbler I knew that was  IT :)..
Warblers are the best Singers of the all the Bird Clans......
I sat at my desk and dreamed a Beautiful Concert by our famous Canadian Warbler, it was music to my ears, the Banner was hung  out the on window.
You can see all the Magpies gathering to attend, the ones on the bird feeder came early for the best seats, you get drinks to quench your pallet, while listening to the songs. The Star Rahsaan is perched on the flower, waiting for everyone to arrive, he is so beautiful..
I recorded some of it for you, you can listen and see him sing if you like  Here , I up loaded it to You Tube  :O)...

I cut a backing of corrugated,  painted it lightly with gesso, edged it with Walnut ink.
For the front panel I used the rest of the cover from a watercolor pad. Gessoed it 3 times,
Podged a lovely piece of lace over it all, painted it with Fresco beach hut.
I used a stencil with Goldens paste fairly thick, then painted it with Pebeo apple green and Fresco London bus for the flowers.
I surrounded  the window with sticks from a bamboo curtain I took apart..


I made a small lace cutain for the top, then made a Banner with some plastic cube beads and a few shiny beads on a plastic string this all came in a dollar store set, loooooooove how it turned out



I stamped the bird on some tissue colored it like a Canadian Warbler, I used the technique from the video at Paper artsy, first painting the back white then painted the front with Frescos, he is a bluish grey with a yellow chest and face, with a lovey black necklace of feathers on his breast. I wanted to make him a little firmer them tissue, so I glued him to a large feather, the quill runs from his chest to his tail, I cut the feathers around his body, you can see it peeking out, and a round glue dot for his head, it gave it some form to perch on the leaf....


I stamped all the Magpies on tissue and podged them in the background.....


   
 I added a black lace curtain for the bottom of the window.....

When I went to put my last Jade tag up on my wall where they were all displayed, yikes I ran out of room. not an inch to spare...
I thought I could make something to house them in, so I have made a special cupboard for them. I will show you that goody soon...
 Thanks so much for stopping by my crazy nest, I took the morning off my desk to go and wrap my friends Jan's Christmas gifts, DANG, it's way too early for this, but the sooner I finish the more time I will have for my own X list shesh, don't even want to think about it. I know I have too.
It's my Friend and crafting Buddy Sheila's BD next week, am working on her envelope card....
I had so much fun dreaming with the Dragons again once I started I could stop :)....
It was lovely to share my tag and bits of the brilliant Concert, wishing you all a wonderful creative week, ((( BIG HUGS )))...

                                         NAMASTE !!!!!

Dianne, how wonderful is this warbler!!! This tag is beyond gorgeous! I don't know what to say it's so lovely. I love the idea of the concert too and - of course - we birds give the very best concerts! We Magpies usually provide the chattering and the laughter, but we just love the sound of our warbling kin! As well as the perfect word and gorgeous colours, I love your use of lace on the tag! Really nice work my Magpie friend and cousin! xxxx
