I contribute to a new-ish blog called Tag Tuesday. For the entire year participants make an altered art hang tag with a designated theme. This week's theme is "birds, etc." Below is my effort. The image and text were snagged from an old craft magazine. I added actual embroidery floss and twigs.
If this type of art is up your alley, take a gander at Tag Tuesday-- you'll be surprised at the different approaches and styles. Really nice work. By the way, we are allowed to post our tag any day of the week so you might want to check back now and then as new tags appear daily.
