Bird Soup

This morning I checked out the Order of the Opus Gluei and their challenge #50 is BIRDS. I don't want you to think I don't have a life and so could immediately drop everything and create something for this challenge, but I'm into sitting at the computer this morning, doing nothing of any consequence really. (Except that my daughter and her DH are coming for supper, so I better get my rear in gear soon). So this is was I came up with. I must have been hungry as I made this (you'll figure it out) and it's no secret that I'm not a big fan of birds at the best of times. They are yummy though. At any rate, I've used some clip art from Freubel (in particular, the bust, and the arches. I love her stuff. The rest of the ingredients (for my soup) are assorted downloads from the Internet. I'm well aware this won't win any awards for techniques, but I had a lot of fun doing it and find comfort in the fact that I may have reduced the bird population by one or two. TTFN


  1. Well, I must say, this is a very creative assemblage. All different sorts of .... well, birds! lol. The images are great, love how you put everything together, and of course, very humorous!

  2. This is just brilliant, Electra! I love it, and I'm even a vegetarian! So, those are truly some mad art-making skills you're working, girl! You never fail to make me smile. :-)

  3. Oooo this is seriously good. My favourite is the ghoulish lady waiting in the wings (oops, pun not intended) with a seagull on the barbeque. Wish I had your eye.

  4. LOL - I'm glad you have your priorities straight! Opus Gluei and then everything else! Love that you took the time to participate in the challenge and hope you were able to get everything else in order for the rest of your day!
