I was inspired by a couple of projects on pinterest. They used paints, birds, and text all elements I love to mix together. :)
My project doesn't look like there is any lavender in it, but it is there. :) I promise! I started with a surface of white acrylic paint misted with Lavender glimmer mist. I also misted the soft mulberry paper used in the nest.
The background was painted, misted and stamped using the text from Bluebird. I love the text as it is from the book To Kill a Mockingbird. The edges were distressed with the distressing tool and sponged with brown dye ink.
The center house is from Whimsical Melange stamped with black archival ink. The banners and butterfly have a touch of green watercolor pencil. The bird is from the Birds of a Feather plate. The sentiment is from the Songbirds plate.
Here are the beautiful colors:
