I have a friend who has a bit of a fling with flamingos at the moment.  It's her birthday today.  So what did I make her?  Flamingos!
The pin cushion is made from a tuna can, covered in silk and velvet.  I made the birds and water plants from polymer clay, and attached every piece to a pin.  One can re-arrange the pond if it takes your fancy to do that.  Reminds me a little bit of those zen gardens everyone had on their desk a while ago; sand, pebbles and a tiny rake so you can pretend doing yardwork while at the office.  This is the crafter's version :-)
