Little bird wall hanging
guest designer Kerry Lynn
I used another book cover for this one.  It's a great size for this project.
The large flower is a rosette I created using vintage piano roll paper {i hoard this stuff}.  I layered the rosette, a Christmas tree light reflector and then a metal clock (Vintage hardware kit).  Next is a bird made with the 7gypsies Victoria clear stamp set. I stamped the bird image, cut it out and then glittered with blue glitter.  I added some little vintage numbers to complete the center portion and then attached the entire rosette to the book cover.
The hanger is a vintage bulldog clip.
 To finish it off, I punched a hole at the bottom of the bookcover, added an eyelet and a large hanging crystal (Princesca Harware kit).
 Another fab project from Kerry Lynn!
Gotta get some of those bookcovers, right?  Apparently, there's a hundred things to do with them that have nothing to do with books.
