I've got a Pocket Full of Sunshine....

This is post #2 for see the EAD Designs Weekly steal
Don't forget to scroll down to the next post!
Welcome to the
Pocket Full of Sunshine Hop!!!
I'm so glad you dropped in!!
I thought I'd use some mood music today...
I went a little off the beaten path with my project
and altered a birdhouse. I'm sure you've probably all seen these
cute little naked birdhouses at Joann's or whatever your local craft store is.

I primed the birdhouse with Gesso and then painted it with a layer of vanilla acrylic paint and then a layer of sky blue acrylic paint. I then applied papers from the Pocketfull of Sunshine Kit,
available on your right, for 35$ with free shipping!!
After that I sanded it everywhere to give it that vintagey cottageish look.
I painted over the whole thing with a medium transparent glaze.
I then added the flowers and painted the birds from the BIRDS OF A FEATHER KIT also available on your right.

I think it turned out pretty cute!

To see the contents list for the kits just click on the
on the top of this page.

Make sure to go check out the DT and leave them all some love
then come back here and let me know you did,
cuz someone's going to win some
Free Paper!!
