Monthly Feature Challenge: BIRDS+FEATHERS

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 1, 2016, 8:00 AM

:bulletpink: Guess what's going on this month?! :la: My cohort DukeWaxeye is having a birthday and in celebration of his birdy-ness I decided to do birds and feathers for the feature challenge. A waxeye is also known as a silvereye, as it happens, and the little guys are terribly cute. Give them a google image search, you won't be disappointed. :nod:

I wanna see lots of bird celebration happening! :eager: Do you have some leftover craft feathers from making turkeys with kindergarteners three Thanksgivings ago? Have you been considering tackling the challenge of drawing angel wings? Have you been wanting to create a gorgeous musketeer hat and stick a feather onto its side? Has a feather duster been in your future? Now is the time to make it happen! :stare:

Your challenge is:
  • Take your own craft and make a bird or something with feathers!
    • :la: It must be submitted to DA after this journal to count!
  • Link back to this journal in your description.
  • Comment here with a thumb/link so that I don't miss it.
  • Even if you aren't an artisan feel free to participate!
    • Yes!! Bring me drawings!!
At the end of the month I'll feature all your new chirpies and feathery wonders in a new journal. :squee:
