I found these paper mache houses at Micheals on sale last year. I decided to make them into bird houses. I had some hand made paper that I used to cover the house with Mod Podge. I used wire and wooden beads for a hanger. I draw a circle and painted black-added a branch painted brown. I used alcohol ink to a wooden bird- added the word dream. Put a hole to hang the bird from the handle. Found a cute saying placed on a piece of wood-added it on the roof. Sealed with a good sealer. I am putting them in the Holiday House. I sure hope they sale.
I found a set of wooden salad bowls and wondered what I could do with them. I decided to make a what not bowl. Something to catch anything and every thing. First I cleaned them really well. I used tissue paper to cover the bowls that had a cool design. I added words on the inside of the bowls. This one I used the word change. Some I added the word keys, junk even what not's. I sealed with a good sealer. I hope they sell at our Holiday House. I like how they look.
Front or back view-I plan on enjoying one side for a while and then change it to the other side. Both sides are beautiful.
These are some spoons I made into ornaments. I cut part of the handle off (I will use the top part of the handle for another project.) and bend back the remaining part of the handle to form a circle so I could hang them. Added an image and covered with diamond glaze. I also added a little glitter around the edge to add some sparkle. Added some velvet ribbon and a hook for hanging.
I made these glass pendants for the swap. I had these glass pendants with a flat back. I picked a background and added lovely vintage ladies from Artchix Studio collage papers. Then added a bail. I hope my swap partners like them.
My swap partner is Lisa Robinson-One of her favorite colors is green so I used alcohol ink to tint the inside of the bottle green. Also she likes vintage buttons so I put a fairy in the bottle with some vintage buttons. I also used vintage buttons to make the flowers on top. I sure hope she like it.
This swap was with "The Sum of all My ATCs" and Claudine Crimer is the host. We were to alter a tin and add a gift inside to our partner. It was a lot of fun and I choose the sea as my theme. I used bottle caps to make into magnets as the gift. I sure who ever my partner is they like them. I can't wait to see what I get.
