5 for 5 Thanksgiving Challenge - Turkeys!

 Welcome to Day 4 of our 5 for 5 Thanksgiving Blog Event. Today our theme is 'Turkey". We are all sharing a project where we used Turkeys. Each day our 5 Designers will post a Thanksgiving Inspired Project based on a theme. 

I have an awesome prize for the 5 for 5 challenge!!  Make sure you comment on each of the designers projects for the week and I will put your name into the random drawing on Day 6 for a $10 Michael's Gift Card!! With all the coupons and sales they have going on right now, you could use that money to restock your favorite color paint or medium!!

So, my favorite Turkey ... is the Hokie Bird.  He is the mascot of my favorite college - Virginia Tech!!  This little canvas did not photgraph well.  The canvas is an orange and titan buff with an image transfer of the Hokie Bird.  It was fun to make ... it was hard to get it just right and there are many different versions hidden under the final orange paint!! Although, he looks better in person, I just wanted to share my Turkey with you all!!  
Here is a closer pic of the Hokie Birds Head!
