Project Complete

011


Last week I went over to my sister-in-law Laurie’s with my birdhouses in hand. She made one using some of my ideas and I made this one using hers.


I loved the jewel hanging from the roof.


013


I knew that I had to use the soar ticket and the clothesline. SWEET!


Also loved using corrugated cardboard for the roof.


014


She gave me a piece of this cool paper by Tim Holt. It is just a natural color with subtle images. You apply colored stains and then the images pop. So cool! She always has and knows the latest and greatest.


Like I say, my birdhouses are cute, but hers will be to die for!


015


No bird village would be complete without a few birds flying in the branches. I bought a package of chipboard birds at Archivers. I covered three of them with paper and added a few embellishments.


018


This musical song just happened to be about a Robin. I couldn’t possibly cover that up.


019


I kept this one real simple because I loved the paper.


Now, to show you what I did with all of these little birdhouses that I created.


020


I placed it in my entry for a TWEET meet and greet.


Stop by and hopefully it will put a song in your heart!


I must give a shout out of thanks to my friend Joyce. She brought me the branches. She actually brought four of them and I used two. They were just what I envisioned!

Love the soar ticket, which is exactly what you have done with this project, you have soared to greatness. I love the tree branches with all the houses, I am on my way over to see it in person. You rock no you soar! See you soon.

I saw the finshed project today. It is really something to chirp about! If I was a bird, I'd seattle myself on a branch and pick me a house to live in. Very cute!!!

I can't believe how detailed and how much work went into each house & bird.
I think your new name will be Embellishment Jann.
