Why hello there,
If you happen to not know who I am, my name is Drew Scott and of course my blog is Scrappyhappiness.com. I am a 16 year old male crafter and I have been loving this hobby since about 2010. I am currently working for Prima as an insructor which is how I met Sherry (the lady who set up this wonderful hop). Lets get started with my project (dont forget about the giveaway!)
Alrighty, So I created this unique little altered art type piece all from scratch. I used some paper cord, hemp and lace to structure the nest. It really wasn’t to hard to structure as paper cord typically has some body to it, plus I used a lot of hot glue. I used many mists and mediums on the project from Tattered Angels and Tim Holtz. The little bird was a paper mache one I found at Michael’s in the dollar bin in which I covered with paint, crackle medium and sprays (lovely huh!). Of course I had to use a few Prima crystals for the eyes and on the base of the stand.
The base is made from a Maya Road chipboard Button, 2 large wooden spools and some trinkets! I added a few Prima flowers, Tim holtz trinkets and a stick pin which was originally lime green (you can kinda see the color on the metal of the pin). I just secured it all with hot glue as I normally due and called it good. I used my mists for a little extra sumtin sumtin!
Here are a few more photos of the project incase you would like a closer look!
Lovely! I really love the outcome. I think it is a really wonderful little vintage style piece to add to a shelf. Ok so why dont we get to the best part…
