Hello everyone Semonti here again at The Element Craft Studio blog with my 2nd post. Today I’m sharing a colorful 3d mixed media project a bird house.
Products are listed below which I’ve used in my project and all of them from TECS.
3. Fences 1
4. Chalk paints
5. Glimmer dust – Twinkling Nights
Step by step tutorial:
Add some art stone here and there in front of the base for more texture.
After drying I paint the roof with Tangerine chalk paint and used other colors as dry brushing for rusty, mossy effects and highlighted the texture on roof (Patina, Shy Olive, and dark brown).
In front of the base I’ve apply Fuller’s Earth chalk paint first. Now I want some spray colors effect with chalk paints so I have diluted the other colors (Patina, Tangerine, Shy Olive, Gunmetal and dark brown) with little water and apply the colors as my desire look.
Colored a piece of gauge with same shades of colors and add it in front for more grungy effect.
Now I’ve decoupage two sides of the bird house with lovely decoupage paper.
Add two wooden fences, one in front and the other one side of the base. Applied texture paste onto the fence for texture and then color them with chalk paints. Also add some glimmer dust on tiny birds on one of the frame.
I’ve fussy cut all the leaves and red berry and one big bird from the paper set. Decoupage the bird in front of the house as 3d decoupage technique.
Stick all the leaves and berries to the hose mainly roof and front. Add moss and sisal fiber for more natural look to it.
Now I’ve add some flowers. Any beautiful projects aren’t complete without beautiful flowers as our nature incomplete without the lovely flowers isn’t it? So I’ve decided to make my own flowers for this project and add them onto my bird house.
Here are more pictures of my project. Hope you all like it.
