Mixed Media Monday challenge

This week's Mixed Media Monday challenge is simply "art".  Love that, you can just put up what suits your creativity this week.

I did this fabric and paper collage with a theme of birds and hearts.  Yes, still stuck on birds and hearts.  I just love both.
I had some fun with this one and my brand new Tim Holtz embossing folder.  I am going to do a short tutorial today and will post on my blog about how to do the easy peasy background for this piece using my Sizzix machine, the embossing folder and one of his new colors of Distress Inks.

Oh, it's wonderful! I love the muted tones - and the textures are very compelling. What's not to love about birds and hearts...?
