Welcome to day 2 of Lulupu "Sparkle with Prima" Blog hop! I am super excited to be a part of this month long celebrations organized by Lulupu team to celebrate all the Indian festivities with new Prima products now available at Lulupu Craft store.
When Lulupu team invited me to be a part of the hop, I was super excited! I knew that this time, I have to move out of my comfort zone and try something new. I decided to alter this cute wooden bird house which I was hoarding for a long time!
I first coated the whole house with white Gesso to create the base..
Then I mixed pink perfect pearls from Lindy's Stamp Gang into Gesso as I wanted a pink shabby chic look..
This is how it looked after 2 coats (White base + Pink color coat)..
Now I started decorating the birdhouse.. First is the roof, I cut few 1 inches strips of prima paper pad..
Then I trimmed these down into the size of the birdhouse's roof.. I used my scallop edge punch and distressed the edges with Walnut stain distress ink..
I carefully glued these strips on top of each other to create a typical roof structure.. I seriously loved the final outcome of this step..
I used some Prima vines to give it a birdhouse in the garden look.. :D :D
After adding vines, I used some flowers, rhinestones, pearls and a hello diecut from my stash to complete the project.. Simply in love with the shabby chic look of this birdhouse..
Here is the complete look of the project in better lights and setup.. :)
I also brushed vines and flowers with pink Gesso I made to give it a more worn out look and blend in the embellishments together..
I hope you guys will like this project.. Do leave some love as it makes me super happy!
