...or rather... Mr Beakless... poor little thing! I made this birdy house as a sample for last weeks tellyshows and I had this little birdy pin that I decided I would use to adorn the birdyhouse. Somewhere along the way he has lost his beak... only I didn't realise until I was looking closely at the pics... whoooops! Anyways... here's how I made it!
The birdyhouse is fab! Tis all in slot together pieces that I covered with Teresa Collins Creative Expressions papers and then sanded around the edges to smarted them up. I used Jet Black Archival to stamp some swirls onto the sides and front and then set about adding some flowers. Well, I have to add them to most things don't I? These are made from the Funky Flowers Creative Exprssions stamp set, stamped in Orange Blossom Archival onto more of the papers and curled and shaped to make pretty blooms. I added leaves behind them, they were stamped in Fern Green Archival (I am LOVING the new Wendy Vecchi Signature Designer Archival Inks... you NEED them too!) The roof was so easy to do too. I used one of the panels as a template for the scallops and pencil drew around them onto the papers... and cut strips, cut out the scallops, sanded them, layered them up and then glued the whole layered effort to the roof panel. REALLY, that simples! And very effective once I had curled up the "tiles" using a pencil to assist with the rolling. I am off to hunt for the poor old beak... it must be languishing in the bottom of a box somewhere... well, if I can't find it I shall have to fashion another one... can't have the little fella beakless forever now!
Don't forget, there isn't a new Sunday Stamper tomorrow... but you still have another week to join in with the current theme which is KEYS. All the deets for the Sunday Stamper are HERE... I am a little slow in visiting you all this week but I will be around soon, promise! Thanks for looking and have a great day! TTFN
