During these days we go for a walk in the forest, almost daily. And... my bag is never empty on the way home. I always find branches, bark, cones. For this year's Easter decoration, I wanted to combine the inspiration from Emilia's (Lady E) bird house and foamiran flowers.
DIY bird house
Some recycled cardstock, pencil, ruler and a tiny pinch of math - ta-da! The base of my bird house is ready. I treat the "Spring" collection by Fabrika Decoru as my precious treasure, however I dared to cut it for this beautiful project. Last year, I used the same collection for another bird house.
For the roof of the house, I used wrapping cardstock and tree bark.
The whole roof was covered in black gesso to begin with. Once dry, I applied white gesso with a kitchen sponge. And then, simply sprayed all inks at my disposal to imitate the forest environment.
The house turned out to be overembellished - just the way I like it :-) I used a number of chipboards by Wycinanka and fuzzy cut elements from "Smile of Spring" by Fabrika Decoru.
On one side, a birdy made a nest, which I embellished with chipboard, die cuts and foamiran flowers - poppy by Lady E.
On the other side, there is a flower cluster, additionally decorated with fuzzy cut elements, chipboards, lace, paper and foamiran leaves.
The back part of the house is kept relatively simple. I applied stencil and white gesso on the sides.
For the foot, I found an old wooden spool, distressed by white gesso. I placed a deer family, little bunny and poppy flower here.
Wish you all a happy Easter!
Thank you for stepping by, lovely day ahead!
