One of my favorite artists is Joseph Cornell, a collage and assemblage artist from the 1940s who worked with found papers and constructed amazing little boxes. Some of my favorite works of his are boxes featuring birds:
Not that I am comparing myself to Cornell by any means, but I was so tickled to discover my own little found parrot the other day. I made him into a sweet button, paired with a swirly blue sky that reminds me of some of Cornell's other works.The buttons are available in the shop.
