MAKING A FOREST SCENE – TOUCAN BIRD ON BAMBOO TREE
I am sharing a Paper Art that is related to Forest theme.
At first, I only made a Paper frame and bamboo trees. But still something was missing. It all looked empty. At last, I added some leaves, flowers and a Toucan bird to give a perfect forest look.
I hope, you will like it.
