Easter mixed media - bird nest

My daughter is a very creative girl, actually. The other day she came home with this beauty, something she made after her classes at school. I could not keep my fingers off it :-) I was kindly allowed to give it a little bit of my mixed media magic.

Wood mixed media

The whole piece was covered by white gesso, then sprayed with water and sprinkled with brown alcohol ink. I added torn pieces of wooden background from beautiful "Smile of Spring" collection by Fabrika Decoru onto the walls of the house.

Bird's nest is built on some tree branches glued to the base of the house. Eggs are made in silk clay, sprayed with brown ink as well to create a realistic look. Die cuts are from the same "Smile of spring" collection. I have added a couple of distress leaves die cuts by LadyE and Craft&You.

Flowers are simple foamiran flowers, slightly distressed in pale rose and blue. They are cut by Joy "Square flower" die, that looks like hydrangea.
