LITTLE BIRDHOUSE


















I am just crazy about birdhouses, and I've just finished this little one (barely 4" high) which fits with the Crazy Amigo butterfly theme.

I bought it for $1 while I was in Canada and even though the perch is a little crooked that only adds to it's charm for me. The eaves and perch are painted with Distress Crackle paint in frayed burlap, and you can see from the pictures what a superb fine crackle it produces. I love the stuff.




The roof is papered with a crackle effect paper by EK Success, and the front is painted with acrylic and subtly aged with green. The paper on the sides and the flowers and butterfly decorations are all taken from a Paper Whimsy digital collage sheet - lots of fiddly cutting out!

Love all of this and you put a lot of hard work into it, especially like the crackle effect and the cutouts.

Brilliant, How beautiful. It must have taken ages to cut those images out, but worth it. Do you make these to sell? Would they go outside? I suppose not they may spoil in the weather. Its lovely though, Well Done Jaqi
