I decided that it's high time to start filling up those empty curtain-hooks over my window.
With a bird-mobile.
Meaning, I get to cut out the same bird motif over and over again (in cereal box-type cardboard), glue string through the center, and sandwich the string by gluing on a cutout of newspaper on top.
And then painting it with gold acrylic paint.
Quite therapeutic work, actually.
And I think it will be pretty calming to look at when I finish. The goal is to fill up as many curtain hooks as I can with these strings of birds, without making it look like my window has been completely invaded, say, by a flock of (highly stylized and rather small) birds flying south for the winter.
