Nellie's Cottage...The unexpected journey of a little cottage built in 1938 by Nellie & Albert. A home till 2008, a renovation in 2009, a retreat venue Jan 2010- Set 3, 2017...now a home once again to Nellie's great granddaughter & her young family...starting over after hurricane Harvey.
One of my tenants left this frame behind and I fell in love! My hubby added a thin backer board to the frame and then I painted it this fabulous barn red. Various blue papers were torn into 4 pieces then Mod-Podged to the frame backing. The branches were cut from the Songbird Cricut cartridge. I arranged and re-arranged the branches before the Mod-Podge was applied.
I was able to both emboss and cut my birds in one motion with the Fiskars Fuse. I then applied applied Mod Podge to each individual bird. After they were dry, 3M was added to the back of each bird for some dimension. Again, I arranged and re-arranged the birds before gluing them down permanently.
Best part of this project? Hanging my art project on the wall in my new room!
