I ran a workshop on Monday night to decorate a birdhouse. I had previously made one with a dark steampunk style, so this time I went all light and flowery.
I started by cutting floral die cuts out of white card (I used Memory box dies). I added my little bird too. I stuck all the die cuts around the birdhouse using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.
Once I had stuck all the pieces on, I painted the whole thing with gesso. Once dry I painted with a mix of pale yellow and peach Eco-Green Acrylic paints. Once dry, I added highlights with a mix of pearlescent paints.
I added a butterfly also painted with pearlescent paints to add a little dimension.
I added a final touch of yellow liquid pearls to the centre of the flowers.
