Before I tell you about the fabulous woven vintage paper stars, below, I just want to mention a comment I received today. In almost two years of blogging I have had so many lovely comments but never any direct criticism, although I have had lots of constructive suggestions. I'm no prima donna and can accept criticism where founded but the comment, which I deleted without publishing, was a simple but direct, unnecessary, and unfounded criticism of my choice of colour with blunt advice.
I must inform the writer that, in art, birds can be ANY colour, it's called artistic licence and on this blog I can choose to do as I wish as long as it harms no one. I am sure that in Nature you will find birds in any colour too but I accept that they won't have sequins on their heads, but in art they CAN!!
I mention this because another blogger friend of mine has also received unnecessary criticism to one of her posts so I am wary that this may be some sort of ploy so, bloggers beware, and let me know if you have had anything similar.
Woven Vintage Paper Stars
These are the creation of Amanda of houserevivals blog and, if you pop over to visit, she has a fabulous easy to follow tutorial. Be sure to go to her blog and only her blog because someone has been poaching her great designs.
These are the ones I made from an old wrecked dictionary but I have not yet decided what I'm going to add in the way of bling and sparkle. I just love them so HUGE thanks to Amanda... I'm certainly going to make some more!
