Now, on with my project!
I decided to give an old birdhouse from my stash new life! My original idea was to make a wind chime with this baby, but after covering it in a layer of clay, it was FAR to heavy to attempt hanging---so Plan B---a photo display!
Before my clay had fully set, I stamped into it with the Butterfly Gossamer/Large image. I just cannot get enough of this stamp! A few Idea-ology Memo Pins were just the hardware I needed to make this piece functional.
I LOVE the texture stamped clay provides! It's subtle, but so lovely. After my clay had fully dried, I gave the whole piece a nice coat of Art Antology's Velvet paints in Red Velvet and Imperial. When this paint dries, it has a nice sheen and such a lovely sparkle!
What you couldn't see from the front, were the glass stones I've embedded into the roof. A bit of patterned paper glued onto the bottom beforehand adds a nice pop of contrasting color against the Velvet paint. To finish off the piece, I've sprinkled a handful of vellum butterflies to give a little more dimension to my house.
And that's the project! Thanks so much for joining me today, and don't forget to hop on over and see what the crew at Art Anthology has created. See ya tomorrow!
