Created for the ABBA Challenge. I stated by making a box using a piece of strong card and a card scorer, using the box lid for the roof of the birdhouse. I sponged the card with a layer of gesso, then sprayed it with aqua colour wash. Next I added bits of text and music sheet paper, then stamped bird images onto tissue paper and applied these to all sides including the roof. over this I sponged a little Vintage Photo Distress ink, and stamped a crackle randomly too.
The nest was made using shredded paper & some fantasy fibres (coloured with gesso and aqua colour wash spray). The eggs were made using white fimo clay, and after backing, adding some speckles of Vintage photo ink to them. The bird is a collage image which was added to the nest. Finally, some braid and a grungeboard letter were added to the top.
