I got a card from my 8 year old son for Mothers day two weeks ago, and really fell for the bird image he had cut out from paper. I probably should use it to make a card for his teacher... I already used it for an art journal page (here) and now I'm using it for my last take on the May calendar challenge at the Craft Barn (prompts Magenta and Flowers). Besides the Craft Barn, I am also posting for the Our Creative Corner challenge (April showers bring May flowers). You can see the card my son made here.

Cutting images from colourful papers paper is just so fun, and I love the magic of finishing the page with sewing and doodling. Even though I'm no excellent doodler (practically limited to dots and small scallops) it always amazes me how cool the effect is. The background has first been stamped with a pile of stamps and then painted with Fresco Finish Bougainvilla paint.

I really like how this turned out... the earlier pages of this collage-calendar can be found here:
