OTP Birdhouse

OTP Birdhouse is my entry over at RSS this month. The very clever Joanne from Tasmania made up the birdhouse (her own design) and sent me one - thanks heaps Jo :) She has also uploaded her version of the birdhouse in our gallery.



I was going to hang my tapes on it, but I think I might leave it on my desk as it, unless Sarah steals it for her room.

As required for the challenge I used 2 pieces of chipboard being the bird(covered in blue rhinestones) and scrapware picket fences (which I painted and applied crackle paint to). Lace was also required and is the snow at the bottom of the birdhouse. (It is actually a lace curtain I brought from the shops for about $2.50 - bargin as it is over a metre wide and works with the sizzex). It also had to be shabby chic, which I think I will get away with. It was my second attempt the first was black and white, then realising in the middle of the night ... crap ... wrong papers and colours for the theme!

So for the second attempt the papers I used was the kaiser cocco range, snowflake charms, leaf charms, dragonfly charms, silver glitter, blue & white stemmed flowers, buzz and bloom chipboard flowers (cut up) and lots and lots of 3d crystalina kindy glitz. We have all the products available except the colour paint.

Here are few close ups.



Our snowflake charm which is just hanging by a dribble of dimensional magic (man this stuff is great!)





Scrapware birds covered with our blue rhinestones - again all held together with dimensional magic



The chipboard flowers at the bottom, painted again, is the Buzz and Bloom Arboretum up the garden path - I just separated them. Our blue stemmed flowers which I have sort of wrapped around has our leaf charms attached. Also have put a couple of our dragonfly charms up the sides




Man I love this 3D kindyglitz and it is thick enough as you can see to "hang"! I then sprinkled our silver glitter over the top of the whole house - leaving a mess on my table!

My beautiful DD, Sarah, has made it into the Districts teams for 100m sprint, relay and shotput. She was orginally as a reserves for the shotput as she had been sick all week of the trials but on the competition day, one team member was sick (oh what a shame!) so Sarah stepped in and WON FIRST PLACE with a throw of 6.15m. So my baby is all very nervous awaiting 17th and 18th August for the Districts competitions.
She has asked me not to let her see me on the day as I distract her so if you hear of any reports of a mother being arrested for hiding behind a tree taking photos of a childrens sports day THATS ME! However I am not sure whether taking the camera is worth it - remember the "action" photos I got of her scoring goals last soccer session! NOT!

I am also not sure where she gets the talent from I hear her mother is a drunken, smoking lazy coffee drinking woman who sits on her butt all day long at the computer.

Have an awesome week everyone
Tracy :)
