Mama Bird

Welcome to the Creative Inspiration Blog Hop! For my project I decided to alter a metal bird I found at Hobby Lobby. It was a rusty metal bird that was attached to the wooden base.


I started by taking the bird off the base. I painted the bird with white acrylic paint and then put several colors of metallic gelatos over the paint. I added the nest on top of the base and reattached the bird. I added some moss to the nest and 3 little plastic eggs. I die cut the flower and the fern like leaves just to add a little color and then wrapped the blue and white twine around the base. 

My challenge to you is to make something that has a bird and flowers on it. It doesn't have to be an altered item. It can be a layout, card, ATC or whatever you want.
