In the meantime, this wee mdf wooden hoose was sitting on the window ledge of my shed, so i painted it and decorated this instead..

I am going to a workshop this afternoon at Stampers Grove where I am going to learn how to draw faces!!.. i am looking forward to it, because I can’t Β draw worth a sook lol .. I will show you my faces later tonight when I blog them

Pot o’ Tags

Hi everyone…

Another wee project for you this evening, using Imagination Crafts Starlights Metallic Paints…

I absolutely love the colour I used today.. this one is going to be perfect for Halloween and Autumn.. it is called Zinober Gold (128).. it is so rich in colour and my favourite one so far, I also used Black (131) to paint my wooden letters

pot 4

I dug out the peat pots again, these wee things are so versatile, I am using this one to store my tags in.. when I have a lot of small bits of cardstock leftovers I diecut tags and store them for future projects and workshops.

I can’t wait to make more things using this paint it is gorgeous! Β If you fancy some you get buy it here

I painted the letters in the metallic black and it is lovely too.. very shimmery, and finished it off with a wee bit twine around the top.

Des-Res Bird Box

Hi everyone!

I have a fab little wooden bird box project to share with you tonight πŸ˜€

Remember last night I mentioned that I will be doing an all day workshop at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh well.. it is a full day Imagination Crafts workshop, using all the lovely products they have launched recently.. it’s going to be a great day..so if you fancy joining me click here and it will take you to the Workshop List at Stampers Grove and it provides you will all the information you need.

So back to the des-res bird box, I bought this wee wooden bird house on Saturday after the flip book workshop.. with a view to painting it.. and that’s what I did tonight..

bh1

Take two colours of Starlights Paints.. I used Mint and Rich Gold

bh2

I was going to make a tiled roof from circles of painted cardstock, but my circle punch was too big for the tiny wee roof and it looked silly..so I cracked open the Stampendous Shaved Ice and sprinkled it all over the gold painted roof.. it looks really nice as the ice takeson a different colour.

bh3

I also switched out the hanging cord, I thought the one that came with it looked too thick to be on such a small box.

bh5

I would quite like to paint a full size bird box in these colours and mount it on the side of my wee craft shed, I think it would be a nice addition πŸ™‚

bh6

Well that’s me for another night, I am off for an early night, as the pup had me up 3 times last night!

See you tomorrow, and thanks for popping round

p.s.forgot to mention all products I used today can be bought from Stampers Grove πŸ™‚
