Prima Altered Metal Frame Birdhouse

Here's a look at an altered Prima Birdhouse I did for a custom order. The person this is going to, loves gardening and the birds that visit her garden. The banner reads "Home Tweet Home"
Starting with a Prima altered metal frame Birdhouse, I used some watered down white paint and went over the entire birdhouse. I love the look of the birdhouse the way it comes but for this order I needed it to be more in a white to blue tones.
 Using some of the items I carry in my Artfire store I took the Cottage window from The Dusty Attic chipboard collection and painted it in the colors to match.  
  I took the green metal bench, add white gesso and then a light touch of brown paint. I had this tiny clay flower pot that was just the right size, added a dab of paint and flowers to it. 
Flowers from The Dusty Attic in Blue Bonnet were just right to add to the lattice at the back and among the vine of printed flowers from Prima that was attached to the front edge of the frame. 
I have a video on my YouTube channel that shows the Birdhouse from all sides. Come take a peek. https://www.youtube.com/user/MooreArtFromTheHeart
