Welcome to Sneak Peek Friday! Today is the big reveal for the little online ornament exchange from our Sneak Peek group at "In the Studio".
First of all, I have to give a warm hug to all the wonderful artists who participated. I so enjoyed running to the mailbox to see if another one had arrived and also how much each ornament reflected each individual creator.
To tell you a little bit about how developed my ornament. I started with a visit to Michaels to see if I would see anything for an idea. That's when I found the round disk. So on a leap of faith I grab 10 round disks.
I have this wonderful inspiration page from a paint brochure that I've kept over the years and between the colors from that and the bird idea and many wasted starts, I finally came up with this ornament. The feather in this picture reminded me that I bought this pheasant years ago from Ebay to use the long feathers in a vase or something.
My "bird" dog, Tucker, would go crazy every time I would take it out the package. I think he could smell the bird. So, I had never used the feathers until now.

I thought the disk looked a little plain after it was painted so the feathers and the ribbon seem to pull it all together. Even the packaging was perfect... I had a clear box for notecards that I never used and the nesting was in a craft box I came across out in my garage. All meant to be!
