A Sweet Altered Bird

It had been a long time since I had done a straight-up altered project when I busted out this cute little wooden bird from the craft store.  I got really into it! I had forgotten how fun and creative it can be to start with something basic and make it my own.

Maya Road products are always perfect for projects like these.  They have flowers of every shape and color and a bazillion small embellishments to tuck away.

I layered chipboard, kraft doilies, and trim to form a wing.

I added flowers, fussy cut papers, and other small embellishments around the belly and tufted the tail feathers with a bit of tulle trim and a couple of stick pins. 

She’s just so pretty!

Dream. Explore. Discover.

Have you seen the latest Fancy Pants Designs summer lines?  Making Waves and Summer Sun are bright, fun collections that can be mixed and matched for a ton of great summer looks. 

Here’s my favorite little guy being a beach bum!

I focused on using the Fancy Pants silver foil papers and embellishments with foil details.

I used a Silhouette cut file for the orange background and backed it with silver foil so the silver peeked through the negative space.
