FLYING UNICORN SEPTEMBER 2015 KIT
Once again, I'm uploading something I did last week - but didn't have time to blog or FB. In the Flying Unicorn September 2015 kits - the off the page project was a wooden candlestick. The wooden birdhouse was from a Flying Unicorn kit a few months back as the off the page project. As I hadn't worked with the birdhouse - I just decided to put them together and make a birdhouse/stand. This is not your everyday birdhouse stand - I primed each piece and added texture paste here and there for some crackling. Next, I painted them with Prima's Chalkboard Paints in Egg Blue and Eggshell giving it an old/weathered look. I glammed up the candlestick with glitter and flowers and then went to work on the birdhouse - same procedure, except I added 2 decoupage birds from the Nature's Garden papers in the Flying Unicorn Small Art, Big Passion kit. (The candlestick was the OTP in the Flying Unicorn Main Kit). I have one of the birds peeking out of the hole and one sitting on top - added more flowers on top. Also added some cheesecloth inside for the nest and sticking out on some of the flowers. Used a few Prima Say it with Crystals hearts on the house. And, finally added some ivory lace (also from a previous month Flying Unicorn kit) on the bottom of the birdhouse and on the from of the roof.
