This months challenge theme is...
In the Garden!!
For this months sample- I fixed up an old birdhouse using Gecko Galz Victorian Spring Kit Collection!!
I have been seeing a lot of bird houses springing up lately! Which kept reminding me that it was well past the time to save the one hanging in my backyard. I have been looking at it for some time now, thinking I really need to go get that old birdhouse in here and do something with it... it was definitely in very sad shape. As you can see below!
I began the transformation with a little sand paper to clean it up a bit. I then applied 3 light coats of prairie sage paint, that I had left over from painting my kitchen last summer.
Now it was time time to beautify it! Using digital papers, icons, and Beautiful Words Collage Sheet from Gecko Galz Victorian Spring Kit Collection!
I applied those beautiful papers & icons all over the birdhouse with Elmer's Glue & Water.
And embellished with found items from my craft stash.
Here is my finished inspiration piece!
