Bird House OTP- Lets Get Trendy Now! 3



I was so thrilled when I was asked to join a group of online scrapbooking designers in a a 5-day online workshop to share inspirational ideas with our blog readers based on 5 hot trends:

Neon, Sequins, Handmade Embellishments, Stitching and Textured layers.


My Trend is Handmade Embellishments 
and here is my project:



My Trend is Hand made embellishments and I made these two little pink birds our of paper. You can read how I made these birds below.

You can see more inspirational projects featuring the use of handmade embellishments at the Let's Get Trendy Now!3 blog.



I loved using all these Prima flowers for this project. I've been wanting to make a bird house for a while with Prima flowers and I finally got the chance.



Here is how I made the birds: 
1. I stamped a bird with pink ink.
2. I embossed it with clear embossing powder.
3. I stuck two birds back to back to each other with foam squares to create dimension.
4. I stuffed some light molding paste in between the birds to fill in the gap. 
5. Finally I outlined with a pink pearl pen to hide the molding paste.




This Project was inspired by the PPP palette at Prima. I just loved the bright summery colors and they fit perfectly with the bird house.
