Topic: Other Projects
Tired of chilly weather, I was inspired to work on a 'spring' project. I gathered the three remaining wooden birdhouses I had bought a while back for altering. The common element on all of these houses is that they have two entrance holes for the birds.
I selected a variety of bird and spring printed cardstocks to use on these. I trimmed the papers to fit the flat surfaces - two per house - and attached them using Scor-Tape (it holds like nobody's business).
I used Distress Markers to color the exposed wooden surfaces - roof edges, bases, perches, and inside the holes. The markers were pretty bold even though I used pastels - a matter of how the wood soaked in the color - so I went over all these wood surfaces with Picket Fence (white) Distress Stain.
I used Distress Ink pad and a foam blender to darken the edges of all the paper corners for a shabby chic look.
As a last step I took beige eyelash yarn and cut a length to glue in the opening of each hole to look like nesting material.
