Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes at We love 2 Create

Good morning folks, its a bank holiday weekend here in the UK so I'm making the most of the long weekend and catching up on some jobs at home and doing lots of crafting too. Its time for a new challenge over at We Love 2 Create and as always you can enter as long as you follow our nice easy theme of 'Anything Creative Mixed Media' goes. You don't have to use our products to play along but our lucky winner will receive some gorgeous goodies from Premium Craft Brands.

For my DT project I've altered this cute little Mdf bird house from Fernli Designs. I've got a bit of an Mdf addiction and recently had a lovely fix of goodies from Fernli lol. I've covered this birdy house with pretty papers and distressed with Raw Umber PanPastel. I've made it a little stand using two old CDs and a piece of strong cardboard roll. I covered them all with paper and again distressed with Raw Umber Pan Pastel. I've added some die cut flowers coloured with a tiny bit of Ultramarine Blue and tint PanPastel. I've also used some gorgeous coffee coloured lace on the top of the roof, some pretty blue lace and some pearl trim.

The bird was made with Maimeri Light Modelling Paste in a silicone mould, coloured with Ultramarine Blue PanPastel. I've added some stamped images from one of my all time favourite stamp sets, 'Postcard' from Premium Craft Brands - the post card, butterfly, sentiment and frame were all stamped with versamark and then coloured with Ultramarine Blue and Raw Umber PanPastels.

To finish off i've added a bow and a pretty brass button and popped some faux pearls here and there.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Allsorts: recycle
Altered Eclectics: anything goes
Crafty Friends: use a sentiment
Crafty Ribbons: butterflies and birds
Fab'n'Funky: things with wings
Left of Centre: mainly blue
Rhedd's Creative Spirit: anything goes

Thanks so much for popping by today
