Mixed media birdhouse

It's getting to be a little springy outside - I'm gonna miss the winter months. But with spring comes newness of life!  And I took a cereal box and gave it a new life as a birdhouse!

I did it gypsy style - a mismatched colorful collage!  I tore up papers from  7gypsies Ordre du Jour and  Gypsy Moments and used some scraps of the printed canvas sheet that comes with the Ordre du Jour pad.  Found objects from outside, like vines & twigs, add interest & give it a natural element, likes it's being overgrown.

As you can see, my bird used anything and everything for that roof! Moss, canvascolored burlapdamask tissuestock, dried flowers....anything he could find - colorful!

Some stenciling with crackle paste here and there adds interest. And Tattered Angels Iron Chalkboard Mist and Satchel Glimmer Glaze gives it a worn, been-exposed-to-the-elements look. They're also great for distressing the torn burlap.

I believe he's right at home with his little gypsy house!  Head over to Canvas Corp Brands to feather your own little birdhouse!
