Beginnings of the Bird Tamer

Oh dear! It's been over a week since my last post - apologies!

Here are a few of the "Bird Tamer's" feathered followers: A grouping of wooden pieces with... birds on them. There will be at least 10 (more like 20, I hope) individual bird plaques, which will surround a larger piece with the Bird Tamer herself. Kind of like a small installation of sorts.
Unfortunately, some of the more subtle pattern was lost in these scans, but you can get an idea of how they're turning out.
I hope to do some that are much more complicated, some with larger silhouettes or more detailed scissoring.
There will also be birds in cages, owls, standing birds, walking birds... I'm basically just making it up as I go along...

Post Script~
There have been many bird-posts recently. To those of you for whom birds are not a favorite subject - don't despair! Some lions and tiger and bears are coming up!
