I decided it was time to think of a way to hang all those darling little dresses I had received in the last round robin for the art club I'm in. I had seen a little clothes line with tiny black bird clips to hang things on. Well, I searched and surfed until my vision was blurry and my hand going numb! Couldn't find them on any of the sites I could remember visiting. So I decided I'd just have to make something similar. I had a few tiny bird cut-outs and thought they would be about right to put on the ends of clothes pins and that way my little dresses would have birds on their clothes line. I used some of my alcohol inks and smeared them together on glossy cardstock. Next I drew around some of the little birds to get a pattern going. Then I decided to make one of the patterns with a scalloped tail. I ended up with 9 dresses (3 of them my own design) and would need 18 clothes pins. Therefore I had to have 36 birds. I cut them out, being careful to have sets of birds facing each other. Once I got them cut out, I attached them with glue dots to 1 3/4" mini clothes pins. I wanted the clothes pins to be attached to the clothes line. When I tied them to the "line", it just looked to messy and bulky, so I used a very strong clear glue and placed a dot of it in the recessed area of the pin and pressed the line down into it. This process took a few days because I wanted to be very sure that it was dry and the pins very securely attached before I moved each pair aside to measure for the next pair of birds.
