Bird House

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I would like to welcome my new followers and I hope you enjoy your visits to my blog and that my posts inspire you.

Fingers crossed that we get some warm weather that has been promised by the weather men.  As I write this in my craft room the sun is shining and the sky is blue with fluffy clouds.  I am hoping to get in the garden this weekend and chill with a good book.

Tonight's post is a paper mache bird house that I have altered.

I have painted the bird house with cream Pebeo Acrylic paint with Gesso.  I then distressed with PanPastels in yellow.
I then added a few of my makes from yesterday that I made with my Melt Pot, the bird, leaves and butterfly are molds by Martha Stewart.  I have dusted mica powder on the bird and butterfly and gilding wax on the leaves.

This is a photograph of the view from the top.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
