FabScraps Adrenaline Collection -Bird Nest

It's here!  The new FabScraps Winter CHA2013 collections are out.  I can finally show them off.  oh this is a grand day indeed.  

This is Adrenaline.  It's strong, masculine, mysterious and now it's also a birds nest. hahahahaha

BUT that being said, you do not necessarily need to do a masculine piece.   Don't be fooled -this paper is as versatile as your mind is creative. 

FabScraps Adrenaline Collection

I decided to make a birds nest.   I had some fun bird images that I got from Graphics Fairy, did a little photoshop image adjustment and made them custom fit to my page.  This page started as a bit of a mistake in printing. When I printed off the first bird, I though, egads, you're rather big - whatever am I gonna do with you?  I went back to my photoshop and whittled out some smaller birds.  In the mean time, I received the new FabScraps collections and big momma bird chirped in my ear that she was just the right size and the perfect color for these strong papers.   So that's how this piece started (with my imaginary conversations hahahahaha). 

I have shared the bird images for you down below.  

This banner type embellishment was created using FabScraps chipboard CD Dog Tags/ Medal Rounds DC54 003.   Dog tags?  Nope -no more.  They are just right for banners and chevrons. 

In this photo you can see the dimension of my layout.  My birds are backed with cardboard for the dimension.

Visit FabScraps on Facebook and at the FabScraps Blog to see all the FabUlous ways to use the new collections.
