My secrets in the branches

Here's three little birdie shrines that I made for an Artchix Studio swap. These little guys are only 2 1/2" tall. I love doing swaps. You get to send your precious creations out into the world to other creative souls and get to receive  something wonderful  back. The anticipation of going to my mail box during swap time is a wonderful feeling.
To make these petite pieces, I started with mini shrines from Artchix Studio, but you could cut some out of cardboard too. I glued on some floral images from the Graphics Fairy  for the background and highlighted them with markers. Then the layering begins, with a birdcage transparency, a cute bird image and pink german scrap from Artchix Studio and some word snippets. The sparkle was done with a foil fan, rhinestones and some glitter Stickles. Now that this is done, I can't wait to see what I will get in the swap.
Waiting in anticipation.
Yours truly, gerri.

"Birdie Details"


  1. These are so sweeeeeeeeeeeeet! I love birds - real ones, arty ones (even roast ones like chickens out of the oven!) and these are sooooooooo great! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Very soft, sweet, and definitely spring, Gerri. Love the fan at the back - gives the shrine depth. Swaps are soooo much fun - gives 'mail' these days a whole new meaning. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous work, Gerri. Donna

  3. These are lovely - hope you get something just as nice in return!

  4. These are gorgeous, your swap partner will be thrilled!

  5. Beautiful! Love the little shrines. Hmmmm...I'm thinking I need to get a SVG file made to cut some of those out. Oh, why do I have to work when so many ideas are in my head?!!

  6. Geri these are amazing tiny and perfect with so much detail. Love the muted colours you have used , and the fans are so gorgeous.
