LESSology Challenge #11

We have a fun challenge called Flights of Fantasy. I took the flight part seriously and made this whimsical bird.

I formed the bird with two cells from an egg carton.  Then I painted it white.

The legs are the metal things you tie your turkey together with to keep the stuffing from falling out. 
For the base I covered a box with DP from CTMH and poked the legs into that. Then I covered the bird with feathers. Next I added a flower to the front of the bird, and the base. The base flower is a daisy that I added a homemade embellishment to the center. 

The last thing I added was a Tim Holtz ticket tags that says SOAR. This was so much fun. Feathers were flying everywhere. LOL This whimsical bird will remind me to SOAR with my ideas.

You can see how I created this in this video.
