Mixed Media Birdhouses by Katie

Evening Crafters

Perfect day for Katie's post tonight, as it perfect the perfect spring day, and we have just put up the bird feeders, although judging by the state of my car this morning, they are eating way too much. Ha ha. 

Katie has decorated two fabulous bird houses. 

Start by painting both papermache birdhouses with white gesso. 

Once dry apply crackle paint. 

For the fairy birdhouse spritz with Lemon and Lime Green mist spray and leave to dry.

Use Glimmer Glam paint to colour in the Scrapiniec 
Blueberry Fairies fairy, flicking some over the bird house for extra colour.

Paint the Scrapiniec Grape Vines and glue them to the side of the bird house. Add dew drops around the sides.

For the butterfly birdhouse spray with ink.

Apply a stencil mask and once set spritz with another layer of ink.

Paint crackle paint on the top half of the bird house.

Ink it again and then paint the wooden butterflies. Add flowers to the front to finish.

Wow, don't you just love that crackle and the bright colours. Thanks Katie.
