built my house of paper and things...

From modern to vintage, this week has been a mix of projects.  I don't know what I prefer.  I love the romantic, soft colors put together to make a little something like this.  The variety of cream paper, inking the edges of the tags to age them a bit, a little stitching and there is always need for a bit of twine.

Supplies: Riddersholm Design (paper), Pink Paislee (paper, stamps, chipboard heart), Glitz (stamp), 
Melissa Frances (crepe paper), bird house, stick pins, glass beads, safety pin, twine, button, ribbon, crochet flower

Although I love create this style of project...I am also in love with bold, bright and colorful projects...

Thank goodness we don't have to choose one or the other...the greatest thing about creativity! 


PS...Found this bird house at Michaels for one or two dollars when their wood products go on sale.  Amazing finds, especially when this is so large ( approximately 5" x 9" x 10")  with a tin roof and everything.
