SUYS June Group 1 Challenge

project: birdfeeder

I have drawn my color palette from the inspiration image, and created a little birdie of my own from Fimo. 

Paint and glimmermist were used to create my background, along with some building themed patterned papers. I stamped my birdcage and feeder onto clear acrylic and glimmermisted a feather to match.

This project was a major component of  a Cub Scout badge Connor was working towards during first term, Handcraft Level 2.  I supervised and make sure he kept all 8 fingers and 2 thumbs while using hand and power tools, and hesweated like a little trouper to get it complete.

The result: a fantastic birdfeeder that hangs in our Silver Birch, welcoming a large assortment of native birds to stop by our place for a little snack.

And of course I have to credit the insipiration for the layout to this little guy and the brilliant minds at
Show us your stuff

Just how cute is this little handmade birdie from Ashley at secretholiday!
