Mixed media bird house, with Kirsten Hyde

April 10, 2017

We have spring here in Norway at the moment, and this time I wanted to create a spring project with the High Tea collection. This is an altered wooden house and a candle stick, I had stored for some time. I have used the blue and white papers from the collection, together with collectables and wooden embellishments.

The bird house, has been covered with paper, and then decorated.

I used a stencil with gesso, to create some texture on the roof. Then I added strips of paper and collectables.

At the front of the house, I have added parts of a wooden embellishment, and layered it with a lace circle from the collectables. The candle stick has got a slight colour wash with light blue chalk paint.

Part of the paper has a “ripped wallpaper effect”. I enhanced this effect, with pieces of torn paper.
