This scrollwork I did mainly to highlight a very pretty piece of aromatic cedar I found a while ago. It was a tiny piece and I really didn’t know what to do with it at the time, so I tossed it into my box of scrollworking blanks and forgot about it until last night.
I was searching through images in Google and came across this picture of a snowbird (pic 2) that begged to be made into a scrollwork. It was such a tiny piece that I wanted a really figured piece of wood and the cedar popped into my mind. Bingo!
It really looks like a dreary winter sky behind the bird – a perfect match!
Piece is around 4×6 inches and about a quarter of an inch thick.
Soaked in lemon oil for a finish and then backed with thick felt.
