Let Your Artistic Nature Fly

Let Your Artistic Nature Fly

Welcome to the Team Princess bi-weekly blog hop for Scrapping With Lisa’s Designs.  This week Team Princess is working on the Blue Bird from the Birds Pattern set.  However, there are a few challenges that go along with the blue bird.  We were not allowed to create the bird in blue, nor were we allowed to create a card or a layout.  We hope this shows the real versatility in Lisa’s patterns.

One really nice thing about Paper Piecing with Lisa’s patterns is you can cut them out with a machine, or you can cut them out by hand.  She also provides a digital image of each as well.

Our blog hop starts here, , so please start from the beginning and spread your wings to fly from one blog to the next and check out the wonderful designs by team princess.

You will find the Bird patter here, (

 What a cute little bird this is and how fun it was to play around with the many ways that you can create with it.  I knew  from the start that I wanted to put my bird in a cage.  I have the Cricut Cartridge Four Legged Friends, so I used this to cut the bird cage.  

I had planned to put the bird in the cage, but he was determined to be on the outside.  I say that because I laid him in some glue and got glue on the cage, and I had to hide my mistake.  I ended up with a small rip in the paper when I tried to move him.  So, I let him fly free and perch on the outside of the cage for now.

I accented the look by adding some flowers to the cage and embellished them with little pink gems.  I then added some extra gems on the bars of the cage to help bling it up.

I completed the look by adding a little pink butterfly above the bird.

Thank you for stopping by today and please remember to visit my Design team sisters blogs.  We all look forward to your comments, as this is how we all improve our work.
