If you're looking for my Digi Haven DT project, it's in the post below.
It's challenge time again at Fussy and Fancy, this time our theme is "Shabby Chic" and we're sponsored by Live and Love Crafts. I've gone off the page with an altered project this time, using an MDF clock kit from Anna Marie designs.
I used Prima, Fairy Rhymes papers to cover the pieces before assembly, brushing gesso round the edges to add to the shabby look, and adding Star Dust Stickles to the butterflies. One of the papers had a weathered, slatted wood design, which I thought was perfect for the bird house roof.
I painted the bird with gesso, and once dry, I added a coat of Rock Candy Crackle Distress Paint, then, once it was dry, inked over with Distress Ink in Victorian Velvet and Frayed Burlap. I then added feathers for wings and gems for eyes.
I decorated the roof with some handmade flowers, made with Spellbinders and Marianne dies. I shabbied them up a little with a touch of gesso and a hint of Star Dust Stickles, and finished the cluster with some feathers and die cut leaves.
