Christmas Wine Cork Tree with Gelatos

A Vintage Inspired Birdhouse

Hello, it's guest artist Amy here today, to share an altered birdhouse I created using great Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products, especially Gel Medium, which made for great layers of texture on the wooden birdhouse.

Have a look at how I layered on vintage book pages,using gel medium, gesso and a light layer of gelato in melon, to create a fun, vintage inspired piece of home decor.

It was super fun (and quick) to use the gel medium to adhere the layers of curled paper, and create whimsical shingles, with a nice sheen that allowed glitter to be sprinkled and held easily.

Thanks for having a look at my birdhouse today! I hope you'll give altering a $1.oo or upcycled item a try!
