Birds Everywhere

We do have birds everywhere on our patio. I have my 8 budgies in a cage, Mike has his "Linnies" in one cage and his Bourke parakeets and cockatiel in the top of another cage. In the bottom of that cage are Mr. and Mrs. Flip who are currently taking care of their newly hatched 4 babies. They are red rump parakeets -- Mr. Flip is so beautiful. So this page is an homage to our bird family.
I haven't posted for a few days so I'm posting several entries here from my journal. I have been experimenting for the fat book for our group and not getting the results I would like, so I just make journal pages to rid myself of my impatience and anxiety. I need to make 116 4x4 pages. I've never done this before, but I wanted to push myself to work on a challenge with a deadline instead of just making "pretty" stuff when I feel like it. This one is "Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries".

hey there.
Thanks for mentioning my blog in your sidebar.
I love the first picture (The yellow one) How did you make it? Did you use poster paints? (That is what i use in India)
Cheers

Dont know if you know I dabble with colors too--and most of my work is also with mixed media, paper and collage!
