I accomplished nothing that I had to do, but boy did I procrastinate like a champ and had fun crafting instead.
I began with black cardstock and cut 4 houses out and then painted them in white acrylic paint.
Once the acrylic dried, I coated them with crackle.
While the crackle dried, I thought it would be fun to recreate a metal roof for a couple of them so this how I did that.
I used a piece of metal tape that I cut to fit the roof, folder embossed a design and then inked it with Adirondak inks.
Once the ink was dry, I painted on a light wisp of white paint and then filed it off in places for the very old and weathered look.
Birdhouses need little eggs and I didn't have any so I created hot glue dots and then gave the dots a coat of white paint. Once the white was dry a light splatter of baby blue ink added as well.
Viola, baby bird eggs.
Hand rolled roses, little banner cut from the Silhouette machine, a little bit of moss from the Dollar Store and those fabulous pink gems from my blog buddy Mitra; THANK YOU!!
They look so perfect on these houses.
There are little holes on the top of the roofs so that these can hang from lights and illuminate through the little door and windows...so cute!
Thank you so much for all the very sweet comments of encouragement and thank you so much for stopping by.
Hugs n' Happy Crafting,
