Finnabair Metal Bird House

This is the cutest little metal birdhouse and it has been so beautifully decorated by so many people since Finnabair released it.  Not really being a "flower" person I saw it with a more "industrial" eye, and so used lots of Finnabair mechanicals, a little angel, some chipboard and some cardboard "inner tubes" from cling wrap rolls.

The 'metal' drums were made from cardboard inner tubes

Black Gesso, Soft Gloss Gel, Mica Powders and embossing enamel were used to get a 'metalic' look.

Graffiti images pasted onto the walls.

Just an old junk shed.

With some eerie secrets.

More details and a list of materials can be found HERE on Finnabair's blog and all materials used in this project can be sourced from HERE at Mixed Media Place.

Thanks for visiting today, have a happy and creative weekend.
