Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie Kits blog! Today I’ll be sharing a Spring Birdhouse I created using items from this month’s mixed media kit along with items from my stash!
I created the birdhouse with various brown and tan cardstock sheets and some patterned papers from Friends and Craft O’Clock using Silhouette Store ID# 271046 – “Birdhouse 3D Gable Box” by Snapdragon Snippets (Snapdragon Snippets Assembly Instructions)
I used the larger circle from from this months kit on the “entrance” of the birdhouse, then used the last of the transparency and flowers from my stash to fill it in! The stick is one from my yard, the brick chipboard is from the kit, and painted with a single layer of the Cafe Au Lait paint. I added some of the metal butterflies to finish things off!
This photo of the roof shows the watered-down paints that I used to add some extra color to the birdhouse!
Here at the back of the birdhouse, I arranged some of the chipboard to cover the rear hole from the stick!
More bricks and butterflies on the front!
I painted the back of the transparency pieces with the Olive Green paint before using gel medium to hold it in place!
March Mixed Media Kit
In addition to items from the kit (*From previous Tres Jolie kits), I also used:
Scotch Advanced Tape Glider; BEST Double-Sided Tape 1/4” & 1/8”; Art Glitter Glue; FabriTac; Spellbinder Tool n One; Silhouette Store ID# 271046 – “Birdhouse 3D Gable Box” by Snapdragon Snippets (Snapdragon Snippets Assembly Instructions); *Friends & Craft O’Clock “Vintage Bison”; *Bazzill “Dark Kraft” Cardstock (x4); Silhouette Cameo 3; Niacapa Cutting Mat; Silhouette Premium Blade; Stick from outside; Krylon Workable Fixatif; Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.
Note: All other cardstock was unmarked & I’ve had it so long I can no longer recall manufacturer or how I acquired it! I used 2 sheets of the dark brown and 2 sheets of the light tan. (At least I’m fairly certain, it may have been 3 sheets of the dark brown.)
