Sky blue Victorian Birdhouse

Well, the birds are certainly out here in the low country. We even set up a new set of feeders near our window,  so we can see all the different beautiful varieties. They are so wonderful flitting about our home. We had to buy a squirrel baffle since we found the squirrels literally hanging from the three feeders eating all the seeds! In honor of this event, I was inspired to create this Victorian birdhouse using Retro Café Art supplies. 

Hope you will see some amazing feathered friends this week.
Take care and tweet tweet,

Its A Circus Out There with the Gecko Galz Design Team

For August the Gecko Galz team is presenting a " It's a Circus out there"! I do enjoy the circus theme since it has lots  of colors, patterns  and sparkly things! I you know what I always say.... "You can never have too much glitter". Well, enjoy my three Design Team projects and stop on over at the Gecko Galz Blog where I am the featured artist today! I even have a free peacock Gecko Galz image for you today. At Gecko Galz, there are amazing collage sheets and contests to participate in too. Come join in  all the fun,
Up Up And Away

It's A Circus Out There

To make the ATC
I painted a romance Retro Cafe Art ATC frame red, pink and white . The ballon image from the Gecko Galz " up up and away " collage sheet was painted and dotted with Stickles. The up up and away words were cut from the same. Sheet. A red heart from Retro Cafe Art was then added with more Stickles accents.

The card "amusement "used the circus image of the woman and her horse, which was hand painted and glued to a background paper of soda bottle caps.  I layered the hand stamped vintage circus poster and the medallions next. Both  were painted with water colors and accented with Stickles. The amusement definition was also water colored painted. A little banner from Retro Cafe Art was covered in Red Stickles and was the final accent.

The card"it's a circus out there" started by fussy cutting the balancing elephant, tight rope walker  and girl on horse from the Gecko Galz Circus collage sheet. All were were painted and touched with Stickles then added to a polka dot background. The other 3d items are from Retro Cafe art. The RCA fun tent was stamped and painted.  The RCA strong man was painted silver and given a red glitter heart. The RCA carousel horse was embellished. The final 3D piece was the two sized banners Stickled in Blue with a painted silver edge. The last piece to be added was the hand stamped sign "its a circus out there".
