Good morning everyone!!
Today we have Ginger and her wonderful
project to show off. We have the most talented ladies
on our Design Team- I am so happy to be able
to work with all of them!!
Here is what Ginger has to say about her project;
Yes, when I was given all the items that we had to use it really took my
breath away. I could not imagine what I could come with and I thought
for several days. Finally...I thought...why not make a birdhouse. You
see, I collect birds and birdhouses and this just might work.
I first painted the birdhouse with
white Gesso. I had in my stash this cute paper which looks like old
wood that had been painted. I painted these cute little birds blue and
used a fine tip marker to outline around each one. I found pretty
little blue stones to make their eyes. I was given a clear square and
added behind it Home Sweet Home on a white piece of cardstock and added
light pink around the edges. I went outside and got a little twig and
moss so the little bird would have something to sit on. I added a half
circle of cardstock, flowers, buttons, butterfly, stick pins, and
tickets to complete the look.
I took the chipboard pieces and painted them a lime green and then added
streaks of brown. Once they dried I used Rock Candy Crackle paint.
Then added the pink and brown ribbon with another little bird. I
painted the word create and used a fine tip marker to outline around it.
Then added all the other little goodies like the heart, button, and
flowers. I was given the string of pearls so I decided to add that
piece to the top which gives me a way to hang the birdhouse up!
On the back I cut the doily and glued it on, added the half circle
chipboard pieces, and then the little bird, flowers, and the cute little
On this I added the chipboards, ribbons, buttons, ticket, heart, flower, and the word art.
This challenge was a pleasure to complete. It started off slow but I rather like the outcome!
