Find a bird template or free hand yourself. I used http://mycraftnotebook.blogspot.ie/2012/06/kus-sablonu-bird-template.html

Once you are happy with the size and scale of your birds, take your craft knife and begin to etch into drawing, it will take a few goes as canvas can be very tricky to cut into.

Once the bird shapes are cut out, take the paper you have chosen and stick tp canvas with your glue stick.

I made 2 canvases one with the negative shapes of the birds and one where I stook the positive of the shapes on the canvas.

For the positive shapes, take a fabric or paper that you like, trace around with bird shape and stick to bird.

For the negative shapes I stuck postcards of New York behind them as the paper I went for on that canvas was New York themed.

  • Remember don’t be afraid to play with scale if you want smaller birds or small and big the choice is yours
