A joy worth repeating, again and again, warm conversation, tea, and a friend.

Once Upon a Springtime Bird House
I saw this little bird houses at Joannes and thought it would make a cute decoration. I just love this Graphic 45 paper "Once Upon a Springtime." The birdhouse was only $1.00 and I used most of my scraps left over from the Easter Baskets to cover the bird house. I used Nellie S. punches, Martha Stewart punch and Glimmer mist. At one of Irina Blount's workshops she showed us how to make vellum flowers. I could only find clear so I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to give it some color. I distressed the papers with brushed corduroy, rusty hinge, and picket fence. The Graphic 45 cutouts are added on the top and sides. I used pop outs for the sides. The little bird is from Vintage Trinkets. This was fun to make. I have two other styles that I am going to do.
