More Birds...


Duck Soup

La Vie Est Belle


or 'La vie en rose'....
this little creature is singing her lungs out, in fact she's singing the reds right out of the poppy!

Since only looking at the knife and scissors gives me the dermatitis I have to incorporate more painting and drawing. That's no problem for me because I have piles of images already cut out.

If we can do rain dances than it must be possible to do spring songs as well on this very stormy day
here in Holland ;))

The World's Largest Microscope

The Virgin Adored


THEME: Free-For-All

Thanks for letting me pick themes for the month.  Now someone else must step up to bat! 

For the last theme I am picking a theme that a theme-picker might pick when they want everyone to just have a good old time and not think so hard...so I will bring back a theme I have always enjoyed: 

Free-For-All!  Anything goes.

"Gone Bird"

"Gone Bird"  (ha ha a play on the title "Gone Girl").  Those are all extinct birds that have disappeared off the face of the earth!  Starting with the large bird to the left of the pretty little girl who seems to be waving bye-bye is a Dodo.  Next is a reconstruction of a prehistoric bird called an Archaeopteryx (Jurasic period, about 135-181 million years ago).  A Carolina Parakeet is nibbling on the girl's hat.  And finally a Great Auk.

Diamonds Are Forever
Of all the girls in the world Roger picked this one to bring his serenade....

This is one from my archives, (the money is in the title ;))
I'm still struggling with my hand, but hope to be collaging again soon.
