Sweet Blue Bird

Hello, little blue bird!



I LOVE those little wooden craft plaques you can get at Michael's or Hobby Lobby for 99 cents.  They are so fun to play around with!  So cheap and so versatile.




This one got a coat of blue, then Weathered Wood crackle medium, then a snowflake white, then a clear glaze.




I used a cute antique bird cookie cutter to cut my bird out of scrapbook paper.  Then I Mod Podged him (or her?) on the plaque.






Maybe my little bird is a sign of Spring!
