I was kindly asked by Windy & Friends to participate in an Instagram Christmas carol. From December 1 through December 12, twelve creative participants will each visually interpret one line of the iconic carol "The Twelve Days of Christmas". My day is today - December 4, and my line is "On the fourth day of Christmas my true love sent to me four calling birds".
I have been humming the carol throughout the last week, and it has been so cosy to paint and cut out these four little calling birds. They are painted on each side, and my idea is to use them as ornaments on our Christmas tree. I love the tale about the lonely fir tree left back in the forrest that in the end is decorated only with nature itself - red berries, ice crystals and colourful songbirds.
You can follow the carol on Instagram by using the tag #12daysoflovely - there is so much cosy going on and also lots of giveaways.
