Scrapping Queens of 2013 - YT Hop - Pocket Full of Posies

Hello to you all,

I know it has been a while but what better way to come back to blogging by showing a beautiful project I have created for a YouTube Hop.

I am so excited to have participated in this month's Scrapping Queens of 2013 YouTube Hop. The beautiful hostess' of Scrapping Queens are Betty (Scrappassion01), Markisha (Staplem1) and Tmika (Scrapdaworld). I was invited by Tmika and it has been a great honor to have participated. Thank you Tmika!

There is an awesome line up of talented ladies who have created beautiful projects for this month's theme "Pocket Full of Posies". We had to create a project that is full of spring elements and include lots of flowers. So I decided to alter a wooden and wire birdcage that I had purchased from the thrift store a couple of years ago. Here is a before picture:

I decided to paint it all with white Gesso and added some texture (a technique I learned from a fellow YouTuber) and added lots of flowers. I also added accents in the form of a pretty little pink bird perched on top of the cage over looking her little nest inside. You can click on the video below for a detail explanation.....

I hope you enjoyed the video. Here are pictures of the altered birdcage:

I just absolutely love it! She is sitting beautifully on top of my end table in my living room.

Thank you again to Betty, Markisha and Tmika for inviting me to participate in this hop! I had so much fun creating this.
