SOS168 - Peacock Inspiration

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is to use a chicken or any other bird on our creations. I'm not a big fan of chickens - growing up had to clean LOT of chicken coops.. so I decided to use a much prettier bird - peacock.

My peacock is from an older set from Flourishes called Strut Your Stuff. I colored it with Prisma pencils and added a bunch of flowers from my collection (stash). Funny  - no matter how many flowers I use, my drawers and shelf seem still full :) Nooo, I don't have too much stuff - just need a bigger craft room

Challenges:
Inkspirational - inspirational image with a fabulous peacock
Craft Hoarders Anonymous - use those flowers
Fitztown Challenge - Anything Goes

LOVE that peacock! Great coloring!

And no, please do NOT get a bigger craft room, as it will just fill up. Ask me how I know. I've downsized and it was the smartest thing I've done in quite a while!

I imagine peacocks aren't much fun to clean up after either, but at least you didn't have to do that!! This is stunning, Alica - and that cluster of flowers! Perfect. (I think some supplies breed. I really do.)

You're right, peacocks are much nicer than chickens...your peacock is beautiful! Love the matchy matchy paper!
