Happy Place
By Marie Claude Rodier

 Hello everyone,

Today, I want to show a special project I’ve been working on recently... a mixed media birdhouse! I wasn’t sure about it at first, but I in the end, I had a blast and and couldn’t stop adding details here and there. It’s super easy to integrate chipboards to this kind of project. They add so much detail to any ordinary objects. As you will see, I used quite a bunch of 2Crafty beauties for this project. 

Happy Place

A piece of ATC Picket Fence was glued to one side of the house after being painted in light brown. Highlights details were created with teal and white acrylic paints.

Two pieces of Frame Georgian ornate the holes. A small piece of Element Set 1 was glued to the roof.
All three chipboards were painted with light teal acrylic, shadowed with dark teal and highligthed with brown and white paints.

Happy Place was cut out from of one 6x4 Phrase Sticks Set 2 and dry washed with white gesso.

A pair of hinges from Hinges Pack was glued to one side of the birdhouse.

Keys from Key holes & locks were covered with bronze wax and highlighted with gesso.
