BIRD HOUSE

Morning,guys,just wanted to share,something I have been busy with over the last,2.3days,playing with inks,papers,and lots of things and getting all inky and loveing it.
This is a bird house I have had for ages,and have been wanting to do something with it for ages,so here it is,I have used lots of different,paints,inks,papers,and on top of the roof I have used,TH,crackle paint,and just realised,I can enter this into the lovely linda,ledbetters,challenge this week,which is crackle paint.
I only joined this last week,and having so much fun,such a wonderful talented,lady too.

The nest I made out of,some,wait for it,.........pasta,then used some good old flour and water moulded them together,then wrapped in papers,waited for it to dry then painted again with distress paint.  The whole bird table which was rather white,I painted with distress inks,and some glaze on top. The pegs,also have been distressed,with wild honey cardboard from my stash,the netting also from my stash,I wet that first as only had one piece then stretched it out to fit.  The birds are from my cricut machine,then overstamped,with craftyindividuals stamp. Well thats,it so will be entering this into studio 3
Will look and see if there are any more challenges,later,
Oh simon says,new challenge things with wings my wee birds.
