Kazan’s birdhouse!

Ok, the winner of the custom birdhouse has gotten it in the mail, so I can post the pics now! She had asked for graphic Doodlebug or black and white…I managed to find a nice black and white graphic Doodlebug paper to base it on! This one is actually the second one I made – the original met with the small curious hands of my son before it was dry. While there are some mishaps that can be fixed, this wasn’t the case here, lol, and I’ll have to sand down several sections back to the wood to fix it. It was easier to start over! Again, this was a busy paper that did so much by itself that I didn’t want to do anything that might overpower it. So I added some glitter in the form of Sakura’s clear glitter pen, some black Stickles to the rooflines, and some flowers from Sandylion. I did the stems for the flowers with a white Souffle pen from Sakura. A note about the glitter pens and Mod Podge. Mod Podge immediately spreads the glitter if applied before the Mod Podge! Soooo, there are sparkles that weren’t actually meant to be there, but I rather liked the effect anyways. I went back over the lines where I WANTED the glitter after the Mod Podge had dried – these glitter pens stick to it really nicely!
