Little Birds

Friday I painted a trio of little sparrows above my front door. A pretty easy project, other than some very bumpy orange peel texture on the walls making the outline of the birds kind of wobbly.

(I saw something like this done on one of the design blogs I read. I wish I had noted which one as to give credit to the artist who originally had this idea.)

That is too cute. I just moved my craft studio upstairs and need to make it "feel" like mine. Care if I borrow your great idea?

I love this, and really want to do it in my kitchen. Would you mind? However, I think I'd do much better with a stencil. Do you have this drawn up to where you could possibly scan and email it?

Hi Tricia!
My name is Tricia, too! :o)
The birds above your door way are adorable. Did you free hand them or did you have a stencil? I just love the touch they give!

Hi I'm Crystal. I just found your blog and love it! What a cute idea this is too. Did you do this freehand, or did you have a picture that you copied?
