Hi Everyone, hope you are all well and enjoying some creative time. Today I am sharing my DT post with Craft Consortium on my blog and on their Facebook Page. Please pop over to Craft Consortium Ltd on FB and 'like' to be kept informed of new products and regular giveaways.
I have had this Balsawood Birdhouse sitting in my Craft Room for a while and when I saw some of the designs in their Decoupage Papers I just couldn't wait to decorate it using them.
I started by giving my house a coat of Gesso to seal it. I then used a stamp and Grey Archival Ink to add a peeled paint effect to the doors, fence and windows. I used a metal clothes fastener for my door handle.
Next was adding my Decoupage papers with some Mod Podge and once dry I added a layer of Crackle Glaze to the walls and highlighted the cracks with an Antiquing cream.
I used papers from my Gypsy Gypsy pad to add my grass, flourishes and flowers to the roof.
My flowers on the fence were MDF shapes, I added crackle paint and a Pearl to their centre.
A Little Birdie Told Me was stamped onto a coffee stirrer stick and my die cut bird was shaded with Distress ink.
Finally adding a little lace and pearls to finish.
Please note, I have fallen behind at present with catching up with your blogs after life getting in the way and also being at a fantastic workshop weekend with dear blog friends and the super talented Andy Skinner, so please bear with me getting up to date.
Meanwhile if you're not already linked up to me on FB please send me a friends request ( Julie Lavalette ) so I don't miss any of your posts on your blog, as this way is sometimes easier when I'm on catch up.
