Hello friends! I have already received lots and lots of questions about how I made my bird wall art that is hanging in my recently revealed home office/craft room {you can check out the full reveal here}.

I ADORE my bird wall art. It's exactly what I wanted and it was fun to make. Today, I am going to show you how I made the three bird prints. If you are looking for the tutorial how to create the fourth one, that has text and a bird, you can check it out here. This post contains some affiliate links.

1) Open your selected image in the Silhouette Studio software. Use the trace function to trace your images. This will set the cut lines for your project. You will have to tweak the settings until you get the cut lines exactly how you want them. You can see the image that I started with and what it looked like once I traced it. You can find an excellent tutorial for how to use the trace function for external images on the Silhouette America website–;check it out by clicking here. There's also a fantastic YouTube video on the tracing feature here.

2) Once your image is traced, select the media you are using. In this casepersonalized baby gifts, I selected card stock and adjusted my blade according to the recommended settings. I placed my first color of card stock on my cutting mat and let my Silhouette CAMEO work its cutting magic. Then, I removed all of the cut pieces from the cutting mat. You will repeat this step for as many colors as you plan to use. I used 6colors, so I did this 6times. Since the machine does the work for you, this is quick and easy!

3) After all of your pieces are cut, you are ready to start “;assembling”; your bird wall art. For this step, you need your 12 x 12 neural card stock {I chose a light grey/silver paper} and yourElmer's Craftbond Spray Glue.

Cover your entire piece of paper with the spray glue. Then, place the main body of your bird on the paper. It should stick well because of the glue, but not so well that you can't reposition it if you make a mistake. Then, start filling in the rest of the bird with all of your “;mosaic”; pieces that were cut out from all of your card stock colors. I did not follow any rhyme or reason in terms of picking my colors or following a certain color pattern–;I wanted it to be fairly random.

You will repeat this step for as many birds as you want to complete. I made three. And I still have all the pieces to make 3 more if I ever want to :)

That's it! Honestly, the most time consuming part is selecting an image that you want to use and getting it traced in Silhouette Studio. This was my first time tracing a detailed image, and there was a learning curve. But the cutting and assembling took less than 10 minutes per bird! I just love how they turned out.

What do you think? Have you ever seen anything like this? I haven't, so was feeling pretty proud of myself for what I think is an original idea!
