    Gave this to Mom for Christmas, she is a bird nut and they have 12 birdhouses in the trees around the house. I bought this watercolor kit last spring and as I was working on it, realized that the birds were missing. Contacted the company and they sent the birds out ASAP. Even told me to continue with the wallhanging, even do the FM. Add the birds on after. I think it gave a 3D affect because of the late addition of the birds.
    I think she liked it!

    Yes, It's Whims...They call this one Birdhouse. It was my first time with watercolors.
    When I was buying the kit, I kept telling myself to just get the pattern, I could figure it out by myself, but I wanted to do it right the first time and splurged on the kit.
    I did add extra rocks and grass around the pond. It didn't look finished to me, so I just cut up the remaining scraps into appropriate shapes and added them...

    You did a great job on this! I really like the addition of the birds later. Wonderful wall hanging.

    Thanks everyone! Careful you might swell my head! I'll tell Mom in the morning that you think she is beautiful...she doesn't feel too good today, so that should perk her up a bit....
