Design Team Challenge

Design Team Challenge with Ginger

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 tree.
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!

Thank you for taking a peek!
