Bird A Week Challenge: Week 6//52

I have come across many talented mixed media artists on my journey through the OWOH event.  So, for this week, I decided to make the “Queen of Bling”, a mixed media magpie trinket box (magpies are known to like shiny objects).  I purchased a plain oval paper box, and embellished it with scrap paper, butterfly stickers, rhinestones, and rickrack. I then topped it with a nest decorated with silk flowers, and more bling. The magpie is made of  paperclay, and painted with acrylics. She has onyx bead eyes, and wears a vintage pearl necklace.  I had a lot of fun cutting, pasting, sticking, sculpting, painting, etc.  I’m quite pleased with how it all came out:
