Motto : If in doubt, add a bird. If in REAL doubt, add an egg for good measure.
The above is very true for me. I probably fall back on to the old bird/egg/wings combo more than I should. But they appeal to me, and so I use them. There’s probably some deep-seated psychological reason I like to use these particular elements, but I don’t have time to work out what that is. I just like them dammit. Birds can fly and that makes them absolutely magical beings – ’nuff said. Birds have wings and lay eggs – all of these things go together, right? They represent growth and freedom and spirit and all things slightly esoteric and non-pedestrian.
The bird below looks slightly grumpy – I think I would too, if I had had to squeeze out an egg that monstrous. Maybe she’s just egg-sitting? Guarding it for a larger bird?
We may never know…
I added a drop of dimensional magic to her eye, to add some depth and life, and gave the egg some bling (of course – what would I do without those diamantes?). I tried to find an egg that had the blues in it that would match some of the script on the paper. I think it helps to tie everything together.
A pretty simple card that came together easily, without too much swearing or tantrum-throwing. I think Grumpy Bird and her Blue Egg belong together – may they “Grow” and live happily ever after.
I wish the same for you 🙂
