Artful Times DT piece -- Birds

On Artful Times the theme is birds, one of my favourite subjects.mes, Artful
I have decorated a box this time. I painted it with acrylic paints and then used the magpie masks and used texture paste around them. I used some metallic paints for the birds to give them some shine, and acrylic paint for the background textured bit. I cut out some of Tim's tattered leaves in grunge paper and coloured them with paint. The leaves were then stuck down, leaving some bits sticking up for a more 3D effect. I stamped a few images around the sides of the box. Now what shall I put in it, as it's compartmented inside. Bird charms perhaps.
