Birthday Chicken!

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  Share Your Art With Someone You Love!
Today is Michael's birthday so I decided I needed to make him a special card :)  It's actually not really a "card" - it's more of a very large postcard.  It is 6" x 9 1/2".  I have really been enjoying playing with collage lately (as you have probably noticed!)!  What better way to celebrate a birthday than with a birthday chicken!!!! :)  At least I think it's a chicken...I guess it could be some other type of bird...actually, it can be whatever you think it is :)  I used Mixed Media paper as a base since you can apply both wet and dry media to it.  I incorporated dry wax paper that I had painted and also some that I painted and made into tape.  A touch of stamping, detail painting, white gel pen and a bit of marker were all added.  I hope Michael wakes up this morning with a smile on his face that grows even larger when he sees his chicken! :)  Who needs your art to make them smile today????
