The Three Muses Challenge - Birds of a Feather

My sulphur crested cockatoos have been altered within an inch of their lives. I have overpainted them and given them new legs . The ephemera comes from collage sheets by Lisa's Altered Art, the music was Googled and the lady bird's legs are by Fiddlette of Scrapartist.

  20. "altered within an inch of their lives"??
    What? You mean Australian birds don't normally look like that??
    I love the sense of humour behind this!! Also, that's one of my favourite songs and I'm humming it now and tapping my feet... before long I'll be dancing round the kitchen!
