mmmc April Showers "Birds and Flowers"

April Showers.....Birds and Flowers

On my  container's lid,  displays a tin flower painted pink, a wooden bird with yellow paint and quilled feathers, and a wooden rain cloud painted to show where the "April Showers" colorful "rain gems" came from.  On the tag I wrote:  "April Showers brighten both birds and flowers".  All are displayed on  painted corrugated paper.

Polymer clay was used for the bird, eggs and base for the quilled flower. I cut the nest from a woven twig ball that I added some burlap pieces and then the eggs.  A bit of ribbon was added to two of the backgrounds and the bird has a feather behind it.

 A quilled flower, leaves and buds displayed on corrugated paper is in one of the containers sections.  The last little section has a flower button and two butterfly charms.

A ribbon was added around the container and tied in a bow to hang my display.
