Happy April everyone, and it's time for our Altered Project over at Our Vintage Affair. This month our sponsor is and the prize for the winner this month is this beautiful collection of paper and embellishments The theme is "Easter Decoration" and I got a bit carried away. Had so much fun I made three.
I purchased this little tin bird house at Michaels Craft Store for $ 1 and aged it using Tim Holtz's "chipped enamel" technique then rubbed Gold Metallic Alcohol Ink wherever I chipped the paint off. Added vintage tinsel for the nest. Added flowers from "I Am Roses", ribbon from my stash and this wonderful aged magnetic bird. Next, I purchased a package of paper mache eggs from Michaels Crafts I believe they were $3 for 6 eggs. The technique I used here is the "glue crackle" technique. Added ribbon, some little dry flowers (not sure where I got them), vintage stamens, and flowers from "I Am Roses". Last but not least is my my other egg that I blinged up with several different colors of German Glass Glitter. I think this will look real pretty once it starts to tarnish. I hope you enjoyed and wishing everyone a Blessed Easter. xoxo Toni
