Ocean Front

 “Ocean Front”

I just love these bird houses. Robbie from the CT at Flying Unicorn did a U-stream earlier this month and this was her project. A mixed media altered birdhouse. I love the beach theme and decided to try my hand at that.

Here is the front, After gesso, I added some texture with some paste and stencil. Not the easiest.

I added some texture on the roof also and decided to make some clusters and love the adornments from the store.

Here’s the back of the house. More clusters and I added shells from our trip to the Cayman Islands.

This was fun and I will be making some more of these. I think Auntie Melissa might like one of these.

Here is some sand that we brought home. I love that this a reminder too of the fun we had.
