Whilst my crafting pal was up staying the other week, we treated ourselves to a little bird house each, and I decided to paint mine yesterday - I had not idea what I wanted to do - so just went with how the mood took me.
House painted light olive acrylic mixed with yellow/green ad green/blue iridescent and sponged using scourer with some pale grey. Windows painted with a Pebeo blue and mixed with DYNA Blue/green.
Green of plants and wisteria applied with kebab stick. Wisteria painted paint fusion style with two shades of lilac and white. Flowers at bottom created using end of a paint brush in pink and white.
Paving created with a stencil and Pebeo Texture Gel over a dark green base and painted with mix of grey and black.
Finally sprayed with Crafter's Companion Spray and Shine.
I also painted this little box, and for once I was very good and took the clasp and hinges off before painting!
I originally painted the top as the rest of the box, but then decided to apply liquid gold leaf. (and I have touched this up as the photo shows where I missed a few bits!)
Black gesso over box and then Pebeo DNA iridescent, blue/green, green/blue, yellow/green, gold, precious gold and bronze randomly sponged on using kitchen scourer. A touch of Pebeo antique gold gilding wax applied to edges of box.
