3 Birds on a Line – Tutorial #498

Hey There,

It’s such a beautiful morning here in West Alexandria, Ohio so I wanted to depict that in this morning’s tutorial.   It really cannot get much simpler than to punch out some birds in Basic Black card stock in order to create silhouettes.   Follow along or better yet, pull out some card stock and make this.  Either way I hope you enjoy it.

I’m heading outside to dig in the dirt a while.  🙂
