ABAA - Birdhouse
This is my entry for the ABAA which this week was birdhouses.
Im so sorry im late again, I made my birdhouse from a block of wood. Roofs are not my strong point as anyone will remember who has been following my blog for a while.
I always struggle with them. Anyway, I decided that I would make my birdhouse look as though it was in the trunk of a tree.
I covered the block with gesso, then put card on 3 sides. Using snowtex i created the look of bark adding brown and green paint.
I added a little black circle to look as though there was a bird entrance in the tree.
Next i covered the opposite side with papers, and made a nest with raffia and feathers adding eggs and stamped birds.
Lastly I added a couple of woodland nymphs to the bark of the tree.
Im pleased with it and it will be getting a new home in my mams conservatory.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
