Artsycrafts weekend




These are the projects from a very enjoyable weekend last month. All bird themed which suited me. The pink one, was right out of my comfort zone, I don't often work with just pinks. The large tag was inked with distress inks, sprayed with Crafty notions spray, and stamped, and the tree treated with Terra, through a stencil and spray inked. The flower was stamped tissue paper, crumpled up, and stuck on with metal leaves underneath. All the birds, bird houses and leaves are metal, stamped or embossed.
The bird sampler has nine squares of various materials, metal, fine canvas and card. All are mounted onto a wooden canvas base, which was painted and stenciled. Some are just heavily textured, some are metal, stamped or embossed, and some are fine canvas embossed, or spray inked through a stencil.
The wooden bird house was painted, has a metal roof, and front, with the birds stamped onto card.
