This month's ATC theme is "Birdhouse"... I've drawn up many ideas and now just need to create one or two of them! 

I've been building my own website inbetween ATC creations... and its finally nearly ready to share! 

My website address is and for another couple of days redirects to a blog on Wordpress but by the weekend I'll have a new site ready to share :) Its very exciting!!!

In the meantime, I thought I'd show off a birdhouse I made a few moons ago. Its a wooden (mdf) birdhouse shaped off-the-page item that I've inked and covered with gorgeous papers. The base is by Kaisercraft and the little feathered friend on the ledge is chipboard but all the rest are hand cut (or fussy cut for you scrappers!!!). 

The baby birds are circles cut out of Tim Holtz's grungeboard and covered with texture paste. The grungeboard was able to take on all the paints and paste without going soggy. The Mum bird is my design... I gave her a worm to carry but she kept dropping it so left it off!

All the eyes are black Enamel Accents... its perfect for eyes of all my critters as it stays shiny and raised. Usually I also use a little tiny drop of white enamel brings the eyes to life but I didn't for these ones.

What else? String! I love string! It has so many uses. I've used a dark pink natural string for the roof, it feels fabulous, almost like thatching. All the gold you see is from the gorgeous paper... no idea what it was called or who made it. If you know, please share!

Have a happy arty week!
