Home to Roost

Hello, this little chap has been roosting in my workshop together with his friends from 7gypsies Conservatory papers awaiting assembly into a class project. Well, I finally taught the workshop last Wednesday and I thought I'd let you have a peek before he and his friends come home with me to roost in a box frame in my study.

The base and rectangles are all just cream mountboard covered with layers of the Conservatory papers and overstamped with Prima background stamps - the chicken wire stamp is a long time favourite, so useful! I added some Vintage Photo ink around all the edges, Ideaology tickets, Grungeboard flourishes, shrink plastic eggs in a frayed twine nest and twigs from the garden outside the store to finish. If I get a chance this weekend I will finish the butterfly version from the same papers which will hang alongside this one.

Thanks for visiting xx


  1. This is wonderful. What a fab workshop that must have been. Love the dinky little nest and eggs - perfectly proportioned I might add. Can't wait to see the butterfly one.

    Not sure what route OH is taking to our Welsh destination Val but if we are anywhere near I will try to persuade him to a detour, although it would probably have to be on the return journey but I'll do my best as I'd love to share a cuppa with you ;)
