The Fearless Four got together last week, and our project this time was an MDF house-shaped moneybox - a good challenge!
My house turned into a crazy house .....
The roof was stencilled and crackled glazed, and then I then used some of the new Decoart Antiquing Cream in the cracks.
The sides were papered with book pages, and texture paste put through a stencil.
The picket fence is cut from Grunge Board.
The windows and door were also cut from Grunge Board, with a bead cap as a doorknob.
Finished with a few little birdies, so you could say this is a birdhouse! Though ..... it did remind me of a childhood nursery rhyme -
There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile;
He bought a crooked cat which caught a crooked mouse,
And the all lived together in a little crooked house.
And what did the others get up to .....
Monica did a proper birdhouse, using paper napkins to decorate.
I think a very refined bird would live here - maybe a Goldfinch!
Lin's house was a fabulous orange, with a texture paste roof and some stencilling.
Perfect for an Oompa Loompa!
Linda's house was unfinished when I took the photo. This is going to be a birdhouse too, very country garden, with texture paste through stencils.
I think a Nuthatch would be happy here!
A perfect day!
