A little creative play - 3D Metal Birdhouse Charms with Media Mixage Dies

Follow Me on Pinterest

Wow this month is like a whirlwind!  A business trip at the beginning of the month and lots of new fun "toys" to play with and I'll give you three guesses where I've spent a majority of my time!

I've been having a blast playing around with Spellbinder's Media Mixage line.......

For me so much of my artwork revolves around personal memories or things that I hold very dear to my heart.  When I was a little girl, my aunt Jeanette willed me a gorgeous dollhouse that she had custom made in the early 70's.  That started me on a journey of loving all things miniature.

My Grandma Campbell collected birds - especially cardinals and in the springtime, my back yard is full of bright red cardinals hoping to impress a lady cardinal with their song....

This is a tribute to them both.  I developed a way to use the dies to create this 3-dimensional birdhouse charm from the Media Mixage line from Spellbinders.

Took me a little bit to perfect the technique, but now that I have it down - I can make a charm in about 20 minutes start to finish.  Kinda looks like precious metal clay in a way don't you think?

It was a work in progress......and below are some more works in progress....

I think my family will have to drag me out of the studio.......
