Let’s hear it for Kimba and DIY Day!
This is what they looked like before. I still love the vintage bird images, but the idea of nest building seemed a little too spring like to me. So, I got it into my head that a tree silhouette would be just the thing. I also knew I wanted the background to be the same great graphic fabric I used on this wreath.
I spent a little while fooling around grouping and ungrouping and re-coloring clip art until I hit on the perfect silhouette (if you don’t know how to do this, read the Word help section on grouping – it will change your crafting life!), then I just printed it, cut it out, and popped it in the frame with the pretty modern fabric.
I love it! I feel like the colors were exactly the look I had in mind!
To keep each frame unique but with a cohesive look, I created a whole tree for one frame,
And this simple, single branch for the other frame.
A few more pictures because I’m so excited about how this turned out!

Happy DIY Day!
