Hi all - I cannot believe we are in August, time is running away from us. Nearly the C word again lol.
It is time for our August challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit and for my DT piece I altered a cheap 99p birdhouse.
I took the house apart to make my reconstruction easier. I painted the whole thing first and then covered the main part and base using papers from Indigoblu Euphrema collection. The wiped the edges using black soot DI.
I had recently munched my way through some pistachio nuts and saved the shells to use at a later date lol. They came in useful as I used them to cover the roof lol. I colored them using adirondack colour sprays and then inka gold them.
I used a fence from Fernli designs also covered with inka. I used a tree also by them. For the other tree I used a piece of old artificial christmas tree and placed a lil birdie on it. . For the window a film strip wooden shape (FD again) came in handy for the frame and then clumsily tried to make something that resembled curtains using a scrap of gold satin.
I stamped, cut out, coloured and shrinkled 2 of the crazy birds by Tim Holtlz and place one in the window and one on the fence (could not get a decent pic of them but hope you can see them)
I reassemble the bird house and voila all done and dusted. Now for copious amounts of pics - I forgot to take a pic of the original piece but am showing you a similar house.
I do hope you enjoyed your visit and call in again sometime. Why not head on over to RCS and join in with this months - you know you want to lol.
