|multiple birds are always better than one.|
This little craft project all began with a very lovely trip to Vancouver back in May. While wandering around Granville Island me and my mother came across a little booth selling beautiful things from India. Scarves, clothing, gorgeous printed textiles, and small little bowls of hand carved wooden stamps were scattered throughout the space.
My first impulse, whenever I see anything small, intricate and beautiful is that I want it. Generally reason kicks in at some point and I can usually walk away without handfuls of lovely, entirely unnecessary things.
Not this time.
The carved wood was absolutely gorgeous, and the fact that I have some, very limited, experience with fabric printing and painting was enough to convince me that I might actually use these. And it wouldn't be the absolute worst thing if they sat on my shelf for a bit, they are so lovely....

So here we go! The stamps were super fun to block print with, and I have a feeling many more things in my closet are going to have birds appearing on them. After all, you didn't even notice this shirt until a put a bird on it...
