Tropical Birdhouse for ScrapBerry's

 
Welcome to my creative space!

I'm back to share my latest ScrapBerry's project with you. The ScrapBerry's Tropics collection is so gorgeous with it's bold, summery colors. It was just perfect to adorn this sweet tropical birdhouse.

The current challenge theme at ScrapBerry's is summer.
You can find all the challenge details HERE.

Tips and Techniques
I've adorned the birdhouse with tropical colored flowers including ScrapBerry's Green Curly Rose and White Cream Daisy. You know I always need at least a little grungy texture, so added Finnabair's Prima Art Stones and Mini Art Stones around the bottom of the house. I brushed them with Lindy's Stamp Gang Golden Sleigh Bells Starburst.

Here's a tip for transforming a wooden birdhouse with ScrapBerry's beautiful paper. I first created a template from white cardstock to fit the bird house, then traced it onto the patterned paper. The cut outs fit the little house perfectly. 

Before adding the paper, I primed the wood surfaces with white gesso, then painted a luscious green to coordinate with the paper.
