I had purchased these frames (they were plain black) from the dollar store a few months ago, I had to have them but wasn’t sure what to do with them. The HB doesn’t understand the logic but you know what I’m talking about! Want and need, same dif.
I had zipo-zilch in the form of Spring decor till Cinnaberry Suite saved me with her adorable project, please check her out.
The light went on and I was able to say “See HB I knew I needed them”.
For the frames I took tiffany blue craft acrylic, dry brushed it on and then wiped it off with a paper towel to give it an aged look. I hit the scrapbook paper stash to fill the frame. For the nests I started out using just the moss in a nest shape, things weren’t working out though. I had a huge mess and something that didn’t look anything like a nest! I grabbed a miniature grapevine circle, my glue gun, the moss and had a nest in 2 seconds. Shortcuts people, shortcuts. I plan to add eggs to the nests as soon as I find/make something the appropriate size for these mini nests.
Same process for the bird with one additional step, I watered down brown craft paint, brushed it on and then blotted with a paper towel. I love how it made the detail of the wings stand out.
See the gloom outside, I hope we get some nice Spring weather to go with my Spring decor soon!
