"These Dusty Attic birdhouses were so much fun to play with and you could decorate them to suit any theme! "
For the first one I inked the pieces with brown ink, concentrating the ink on the outer edges. I covered the roof with a single piece of woodgrain paper and used a fence and bird sticker to decorate around the bottom of the house, and added some ManorHouse roses.
For the purple house I assembled the house first then painted it mauve, followed with a coat of lilac paint. Whilst the paint was still wet I heated it with a heat gun (getting up quite close) so that the paint bubbled and gave a weathered appearance). I die-cut scalloped shapes from woodgrain paper to create the tiled roof, before adding molossi rainbow sticky bling and Manorhouse flowers.
For the final house I wanted to create a Christmas feel (imagine how cute these would look hanging on a Christmas tree?!). For this one I covered each of the pieces in patterened paper, cut them out with a craft knife and then glued the piece together using Helmar tacky craft glue before adding the Manorhouse"Extravagent' bling trim, Molossi Silver bling and Manorhouse flowers."
