Bird brain

My new years resolution to get absorbed in doing some new work has got off to a good start and I have been doing some birds. They have got in my head. I even see bird shapes when I close my eyes at night! I've been doing lots of drawing and cutting and tweaking and this is the first one to take flight. A little Coal Tit. He hasn't got any feet at the moment because I don't know where I want him to sit just yet. You see the beech leaves? Well I have been experimenting with laser engraving. It is pricey as it takes the machine a long time, but it's such a nice effect that I have to use it somehow. The laser takes just the top layer of the paper away allowing the light to shine through just a little bit. Tomorrow morning the next batch of samples arrives. More beech leaves and coal tits to play with, oak leaves and a teeny tiny Jenny Wren. Can't wait to see....
