Gypsy Birdhouse


I did this for Caz's birthday and also for the This Thursday Challenge.

I do love doing these little birdhouses as I enjoy doing three dimensional shapes so much more than flat things. The little butterfly on this is my first attempt with fantasy film and fibres to make a "shape" as opposed to using them as a background and I got the hang of this thanks to Linda's great tutorial on You Tube.

This does hang on a ribbon from 2 holes I drilled it the roof, but as it kept blowing round in the breeze , I had to stand it up in the end to get a non blurry photo.
