Spring Home Decor


Thank you so much for all your kind comments and swinging by today.

Finally today i can show you my altered Birdhouse that i have made in October 2009. It was so funny.. when i edited the pictures i had in the back some pumpkins showing.

Well, I have made this for Magnolia Ink 2 but as you know, it was not published. I guess because in Ink 1 was already a birdhouse. However for me Spring time is the time for birds and butterflies like that, so i have waited for the right time to show on my blog. It fits right into the season and to the new challenge we have posted over on Cute Card Thursday which is “Dimensions”.

At the time when we got the themes mailed i was at Joann’s and i saw the heart cut from the birdhouse i thought what a cute idea for Valentines/Spring.


The house is mounted onto a candle stick holder – and a square base.

First i have painted most of the parts i knew i would have trouble to cover with Designer paper with Tim Holtz Distress Crackle paint in Tattered Rose. Than i covered the the house part (under the roof as well) and base with vintage papers from Crafty Secrets.


Then i was ready to embellish. I sprayed the entire house heavily with Tattered Angles Glimmer mist and added pearl stickers, stickles and ribbon to the house. Vogelhaus_2_re
