July23I 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.
