Hi, Allie here with a Shabby Chic Holiday Tutorial.
Let's embellish a Bird Cage for the winter holidays.
I'm using this pretty Bird Cage on my door.
Begin by applying a layer of gesso. Use a dry brush technique, with
very little paint. Simply swish it back and forth.
While the paint is drying, you can apply patterned paper to the background piece.
Once the bird cage front is dry, sponge on ink.
Paint the Fancy Chipboard Title "Noel" with gesso.
Once the gesso is dry, lightly brush on Liquid Glass
and liberally sprinkle Sugar Shimmer.
Now, you're ready to decorate!
This project is embellished with an ornament,
a Frilly Flourish Swirl, some brads, and flowers.
