I decided to try something new and different (at least, for me). My house is seriously in need of some spring decorating and so I started with a shelf in the dining room.
I started with a yogurt container and some vintage sheet music. I tore the sheet music into small pieces, distressed them with tea dye distress ink and then glued them onto the yogurt cup. I then stamped a butterfly and a bird and embossed them with gold embossing. I mixed some Creative Inspiration Paint, Blush+glazing medium+water, painted it over the embossing and then wiped it off. I then went over it with CIP, Winter Frost, leaving a beautiful shimmer.
I adhered them to some ribbon and lace. For the first time ever I tried some quilling. Don't look too close, I know they are very amateurish! But they were a lot of fun so I think I will pursue this and try to become better. The tiny flower under the butterfly is a rolled tissue paper flower. The flowers have a coating of CIP, Winter Frost.
I made a handle with pipe cleaners and added some beads, pearls and ribbon. Who knew pipe cleaners could be so glamorous! Pink and green have always been my favorite colors.
I then added a little bird on her nest of eggs. The two things I love most about spring are the flowers and hearing the birds singing.
Thank you so much for visiting and have a blessed day!
