I made these ATCs for an exchange on Fiber Art Traders. I have never done much work in assemblage, so they were a challenge to me. I used all recycled/repurposed materials. Someone pointed out to me that they are pink flamingos. Yes, they are, though that was not in my head while I was creating them. Below is the whole flock. Here's what I used. For the body - I punched a flower shape from an aluminum soda can. The tail is a petal from a silk flower. I disassembled a broken necklace and used various parts for the legs and the wings. Other legs are the hang tags for ski lift tickets, and the other wings are can tabs. The heads were the most challenging ... scissor buttons and charms that I had hanging around.
