Thank you for all the lovely comments you left me last week, I really appreciate them.
I went to a craft fair last Friday at Farnborough with my Sister-in-law. We spent plenty of money and bought lots of lovely stuff. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo of everything to show you, sorry! We then spent the best part of last Saturday playing with said crafty stash. This is what I made...
I bought the birdcage from Anna Marie Designs at the Farnborough show as I thought it would make a great gift for my friend. It comes as plain MDF wood and can be decorated with virtually anything. I used Frantage Embossing powder in Shabby Green to cover the birdcage itself. I covered the little bird with patterned paper (sorry can't remember from which pad) and added 'some' feathers for his tail, he is rather exotic!! A blue jewel for his eye and some Frantage Embossing powder in Shabby blue finished him off. I then decorated the rest of the birdcage with some moss-type stuff, some dried flowers and pearly beads on wire and some little roses from Hobby House. They were originally ivory, but I airbrushed them with a RV10 copic. The flowers on the left are a combination of Wild Orchid and Hobby House flowers with a little stardust stickles and the rather large hatpin is one I made as a bit of a joke, but I rather like it on this project.
That's it. Hope you like it.
I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today. Take care and have a great weekend. I'm off to see a Hypnotherapist tomorrow in the hope that it will help me to give up smoking. I shall let you know how I get on. xoxo
