We'll start with her birthday card and go from there. I love making birthday cards that can have an optional second life as wall art. I thought, tropical birds are very Rio. Right? Maybe not these specific birds. But I wasn't going for real life accuracy so much as fun color.
And maybe there are birds exactly like these in the Amazon rainforest, just waiting to be discovered.
The inside of the card is blue. The size of the card is 5x7 inches. The materials are archival art papers, gel glue, pop dots, and three black sequins.
I need to add a sizable 'thank you' here to Robyn's parents, who saved me having to brave the wilds of the Brazilian postal system by taking my gift to Robyn when they flew down to visit her recently. Thanks so much, wonderful Gages! My suitcase is your suitcase if I ever get to visit Rio myself.
Stay tuned for the next installment, feliz aniversário, Robyn, part 2.
