Our Amazing Life.....De-Stash Project #4

I have another De-Stash Project to share and this is using my last metal frame from Prima. I am half sad and half excited. Sad that this is my last metal frame but excited that these frames are finally out of the stash and on display. 
My goal for this project was to use up the last of these fabric flowers. 
Unfortunately, they were patterned yellow & black fabric flowers.
No worries, a coat of gesso and couple coats of Distress Paints and they were perfect for my project.
A chipboard leafy vine from Dusty Attic ~ a coat of gesso, stamped with a pattern, coloured with Distress Paint and finally finished off with Bronze Distress Paint ~ perfect for my birdhouse frame.
I can't have a birdhouse without a bird so I just had to use this crowned bird from Leaky Shed. My wee bird is sitting in a nest I picked up at the dollar store last year.
I had a few bricks left over from my De-stash Project #1 so I had to use them to add some texture to the outside edges of my frame.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.

  4. Fabulous project, and love your approach - I need to do something like this, lol! Beautiful details everywhere I look - wonderful! xx Lynn

  5. A metal frame sounds like a great option. I would use a combination of metal and wood to give it a balanced look. I like how people have picture walls. They display all their favorite photos of family, friends, and special occasions on one wall. I have never done that and would like to someday. Better start taking pictures I guess!
