A wreath for Birdsong 4

I created a wreath for Birdsong 4; it will be a raffle prize given away sometime during the weekend.  Yes there are raffle prizes too!  One of the many fun perks and wonderful treats in store for us as we enjoy Karla's hospitality.
It's exactly like the one we made during Lori Oles' class at Birdsong 3
When I was there last year, my wreath was in the theme of pretty women using scraps provided by Lori.  For this wreath, I used the others she'd given us -- birds themed, of course -- and added many of my own.

This one has modeling paste applied over a doily as a stencil.
It's an unusual shape for a tag, I know -- but I didn't want to lose a single one of the pretty birds!
The second one from the left, above, is a playing card with more modeling paste as an embellishment.
I love the "song" themed paper behind the lovely bird scrap; I think my favorite is the woman on the far right from a vintage glove advertisement; I gave her some flowers as a hat and placed a bird on her finger.
Below it, a tiny pattern paper rosette.
A little girl curtsies next to a bird on washi tape; I love the softness of the feather with it.
The tags are all tied onto the lace wreath with different fibers in neutral tones.
I hope the recipient enjoys it as much as enjoyed making it!
Countdown to Birdsong: less than a month!

Thanks for posting the gorgeous photos on today's blog post. I will be gathering some goodies to send for the gift bags at Birdsong. I have everything ready to cut and put together in pretty little packets. You will be pleasantly surprised. I won't post photos on my blog until after Birdsong. And I look forward to all your photos from the retreat.
