One sweet chubby bird ~

I finished my new tutorial! I just love him ~
I don't know why the bird's a "him", maybe because of all my boys!
A wonderful beginner's project for learning how to use paper clay ~
I've listed the tutorial in my shoppe Lessons from The Nest....

I have a few large clock faces and have been wanting to use them in artwork. Well, I can't bring myself to use the actual metal faces so I decided to scan them!

Maybe you would like to use them in your artwork as well:

They're a little tilted but I guess that doesn't matter...when you cut them out you can straighten them up!!

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday precious friends,
hugs and love,

Oh you are late again, dear Dawn.And what a sweet post, the little bird is wonderfully sweet.
I would love to try my hand on paperclay, but haven`t found it here yet,would be great for dolls too, I guess.
Thank`s for the great clocks, sweet, and sleep well.
Love and hugs Dorthe

Well Dawn, it looks like we're both late nighters. I keep saying I'm going to go to bed earlier but I guess you know how that goes.

I love the bird. What a cutie. Thanks for sharing the clocks. When you find something like that it's so hard to do the final step and use it no matter how many great ideas come along. I have so many things that I keep saying "that might not be good enough for that".

Have a terrific day. XXOO's....Tracy :)

I just love this little bird and cannot wait to try my hand at making him. When I was a child in the early 50's, we had 4 similar birds, each a different color and glittered. One for my dad, my mom, me and my little brother. Over the years, only two birds remain. Thanks for making the tutorial.

PS - I love my little sample soaps!!!!!!

Your little birdie is so cute! Love the clock faces - can't wait to use them in some digital art. Thanks so much Dawn!

Dawn, the little bird is sweet. Oh! You could make him seasonal! Since he's white, he'd make an adorable "snowbird" with snowflakes and glittery frost on him. Hanging on a Christmas tree? Your little fellow will be festive!
