Washi Tape

This roll of washi tape has me quite excited. It’s illustrated with beautiful fauna and toadstools that was begging me to do something with it. Most washi tape I have, is used on outgoing mail and little things here and there, but until now none of them have made their way into a project.  

Now birds and bird houses are not typically one of my muses. In all honesty, I’ve been know to get quite the laugh out of Portlandia’s ‘Put a Bird on It‘ skit….. Okay, I’m back and done laughing. Promise.

Once the bird house had a dry coat of Gesso on it, I transformed it using some of my favorite go to mixed media collage items: paper doilies, dictionary paper, ribbon, pearls and acorns.  

And in case you’re wondering, there is no way I am putting this outside for the birds. It will most likely get hung on the wall and used as a hook for my keys.
