I can finally post this because I gave it to my friend tonight. I know she reads this blog, so I didn't want to post it until I gave it to her as I wanted it to be a surprise. I liked how it turned out. My friend has a special love of blue herons and so I made this for her. I used nothing but small pieces of fabric to create the collage. I learned the technique from Laura Breitman, a fabric collage artist.

The fabric Heron is lovely, I love all the color you infused into him! How did you glue? what product did you use? do you coat it with anything over the top when you are done?

I'll wait for you to send me the results of the cardinal collage!
