Little Bird House

Good Morning Crafters
 
Did you all have an enjoyable Easter?
 
Well today we have Pandy's project to share with you!
Very apt with spring being in the air and baby chicks everywhere.

 
 
Check out the stockist locator on the home page of the Personal Impressions website for a stockist near you!
 
You will need the following for this project:

Country Love Crafts small Paper Mache Birdhouse
Viva Chalk Paint in - White – Dark Green – light green
Memento Ink Pads in – Bamboo Leaves - Dandelion
Adirondack paint in – Butterscotch –
Matching gel and doodle pens
Viva Stencil - Grasses and Embellishments
Viva Paper Flowers
Hot Gun
Ranger Liquid Pearls – Lemon Yellow
Any odd gems and bling that will match
 
 Step 1
Give the whole bird house a couple of coats of the Viva White paint.
 
 
Step 2
 

Paint the base and just over the corners in the Viva Dark green.
Use the Adirondack to paint on a few ‘trellises’ for the plants.
Sponge the Memento Bamboo ink over the trellis.

 
Step 3
 

Add tiny little grass stems all-round the base.
Add tiny speckles of the Viva Dark Green and the Light Green to build up the foliage.
Add a plant pot shape and shade in some green for stems.
The more doodling you do to add light and shade to the colours – the better the final look.
 
 
Step 4
 

Sponge the Bamboo Loaves onto the roof through the Stencil – add a bit of doodling.

 
Step 5
 

Sponge the paper flowers with Dandelion and Bamboo Leaves – make a cut through to the centre and overlap the edges to shape the flower. 

 
Step 6
 

Attach to the corner and one half of the roof and over the corner.

 
Step 7
 

Add gems – doodles – glitter – to all sides of the bird house.  


 

 Isn't this so cute?
 
Thank you for visiting today!
