she did it anyway

I saw this new release offered by Unity Stamps
 featuring Melody Ross' designs 
and went to work immediately on this birdcage that I had just got a hold of . 
Since i wasn't about to spend thousands of dollars, travelling thousands of miles 
across the world to the next Brave Girl Camp 
I did what I could by way of creative therapy for myself. 

There's so much here that I'm saying 
in this altered artform, 
yet without having to say a thousand words .
O the beauty of this art ! ;) 

I tried "floating" some butterflies around the cage 
on a strip of plastic transparency.

A little strip of paper, a few choice cut outs & charms for their symbolism 
and my little altered birdcage came to life fairly quickly.
Now I understand a little, how addictive 
playing with birdcages can be .
