Hello everyone, I would like to share with you all a different project. An altered birdhouse, I love getting away from the normal projects I make from time to time and make something more three dimensional.  And Nicolle has these awesome hexagon shingle panels in the store and I have just wanted to dig in and play with them.

Here it is, using natural items the kids and I have found in the yard, bark and moss, along with some flowers and chipboard.

I made a short video of how this came together with the background work with the stencils and sprays to the small composition within the house itself.

Starting with a base of white paint, I used light paste and the distress patterned stencil to give a little texture on the sides of the house and the inside panel. After drying I did some blending with spray and let it dry before adding stamping with the Distress Crackle stamp and the Distress Harlequin Stamp.

After stamping I began to work on the inside focal points. I did a fair number of heat embossing on this project, I think it adds more texture with the layers of sand paste and sprays. Using various natural colours based off the Lindy’s mood board, I head embossed the fern foliage and the Mini Ornate Frames for the mini focal points.
