This is what is on my desk this WOYWW.

This little birdie appeared on my desk quite by accident. I had a piece of paper which I had been cleaning my stamps on and I used the other side to cut out a bird shape for another project. I folded the paper in half and the stamp impressions showed through the cut out bird shape. The colours were perfect so I cut out this little bird, adhered it to a blank card and added a beak and some legs and there he is.........Serendipity..........

For those of you who haven't visited since last Wednesday and would like to see the finished mixed media piece I was working on here it is finished at last.
