At the Frilly and Funky Blog they are having a challenge to use Kraft and Twine on your project so I am linking up with them there.
My blog friend Becky Shander sent me a beautiful Scrabble tile pendant which was wrapped in a little bag she made out of batting and interfacing. I cut the little bag apart, made my bird out of the batting and wove the interfacing in with the kraft lunch bag paper, vintage book paper, twine, and dress pattern paper I used to make the nest.
The chicken wire stencil is by Balzer Designs for Crafter's Workshop applied with Staz On ink in three different colors. The tree limb is Neocolor II crayons, the leaves are paper scraps. The flowers are acrylic paint by Making Memories applied with punchenella and bubble wrap. Highlighting is done with Faber Castell Pitt artist pens. The word Spring is a rub on by Making Memories. The base is a hardcover book with Golden white gesso over the pages. I used ModPodge to apply all of the elements and to seal the page.
If you think you'd like to try using vintage book paper on your projects see my post here to buy an awesome variety pack to get you started!
