Linda's is the first set of pages I am getting in our QB5 Round Robin. Her theme is "Birds at Home and Work". I chose to do an Asian theme for my first page and was determined to use a large puzzle piece ("Chinese puzzle", get it?) Don't know where I go the "Cricket Whisperer" idea. Maybe because there are movies and TV shows made about those who claim to whisper to ghosts, dogs, horses, etc. Ha ha! Really it's an epidemic of mystic proportions.
Chang Lin Hu (my fictional bird) is, of course, a vegetarian.
The faux wax seal in the bottom right corner is made from a glob of low temp hot glue pressed in with a rubber stamp dipped in ice water. A little gold Rub 'n' Buff to highlight the details and voila! I used Diamond Glaze to glue it to my art.
