Have you seen the Inspiration Emporium Blog’s Monthly Challenge?
It’s all about Idea-ology FRAGMENTS (not to mention the fabulous prize of FIFTY big Emporium Dollars!!!). You can read about it using the link above!!
Remember this birdhouse I covered a few weeks back
and I mentioned I had this to cover as well?
Well, here it is!! All buttoned up and beautiful!
I LOVE it!!
I knew this sconce would be going in the same room as my birdhouse so I wanted to stick with the same theme.. birds, so I knew I had to have the Caged Bird die and I knew it would be perfect! I used the same paper stash - Retro Grunge and tissue tape – Market Place. I had some more Prima Sunflower vines so I knew those would also help tie the two together! Keeping with the bird theme, I also wanted to use the same words, FLY and SOAR, but perhaps with different medium… this is where the Fragment Charms came into play!! I used the Salvage Stickers to create my “FLY” tags (and SOAR). The fragment charms were simple! I cut the letters out, stuck them to some Kraft-colored cardstock, then used Glossy Accents to adhere them to the back of the clear fragment charm. EASY!!
I also used the cute new Mini Butterflies Movers and Shapers (the two bigger butterflies on the bottom) and my good old Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch for the smaller butterflies. I covered the butterflies with Scattered Straw Distress Stickles and Spiced Marmalade Distress Stickles. I dyed some seam binding with my distress inks, added the bird and called it good! (The bird also comes with the Caged Bird die cut – and I embossed it with the Woodgrain embossing folder. I think my little country corner is going to look GREAT with these two new additions!!
