Let's Get Shabby - April

This is my entry for the Let's Get Shabby April challenge. You needed to interpret 'Easter' in a shabby theme.

The whole thing from the top to bottom is, birdie from fred The Needle in Penrith, little bird house from Bunnings, Kaisercraft paper (banner) and pearls, the roof is silver masking tape from Bunnings, Basic Grey PP around the Scrapware birdhouse. I painted the birdhouse in Easter colours, which to me mean pastels, green, orange, pink, blue.

The most exciting thing is the largest mushroom. I made it myself from sculpey/fimo. Such fun even though it took me hours.

There are punched butterflies, raffia and choc eggs in the birdhouse.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend! Lib x
