Almost Artisan – Bluebird Collage Frame

I wanted to finish sharing my Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team entries with you.  Since I wasn’t selected as a finalist hopefully they will at least be on display at convention.  But since you can’t see who created the display items I thought I better finish sharing them here.  This is one of my 3D projects.  Every spring I love to watch the birds in my backyard – they search for places to build their nests, decide on a house, build the nest, lay their eggs and raise their babies.  In fact I just had a family of bluebirds – with 3 eggs and I think just in the last day or two the babies have fledged (left the nest).  Anyway I try to take pictures through out the spring of the progress and decided to use those photosas the inspiration for this project.

I used one of the popular sectioned frames (I’m not sure what they really call it) and created a collage type project with various pictures and elements.  Here are some close ups of each section.

frame 1


frame 2 – poem


frame 3 – the eggs, a little chipboard house


frame 4 – love birds


frame 5 – feeding the baby


frame 6 – at the birdbath


Each section has different elements.  The colors are Baja Breeze, Cajun Craze, Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla.

Have a great weekend.

Do you like my new little signature?  I thought it looked just like one of my boys (when they were younger) playing with one of the dogs.  Today is actually Ryan’s birthday – my baby is 16 years old!  Oh my!  Happy Birthday to my sweet Ryan!

  1. Monika, this is gorgeous!! I love your pictures and all the details that make this so great. The way you used the frame and the embellishments are perfect. Colors are so “in” right now too. Gosh, you should sell these and I’d be the first one in line with my cash in hand!!! It would look so pretty on a mantel or entryway table with a Spring/Summer theme. There are many out there that enjoy the little birdies. You should think about it. HB to your son. Is he itching to drive yet? Oh, I feel for you on that one. lol! My son is only 6 so I have a few years but he is into his cars and anything with a flame on the side so I know he’ll be driving fast some day. Enjoy your celebration and thank you so much for inspiring us and sharing. Your creations are always so lovely.
