Home Sweet Home.

This was a box frame found at our local carboot, which I took apart cos I just wanted the 'box' bit.
The inside was painted with white gesso, (the outside I left because it was a light wood and I wanted the wood grain to show through the finished piece) the two outside sides were painted with distress crackle paint in frayed burlap and left to dry. The front edges were swooshed with expresso dabber paint.
The inside back wall is 6 inchies adhered to a piece of card painted with black gesso and inbetween each inchie I scribbled lines with coloured pencils.
The nest is made from wire, inside I put a flower and the bird is one I have had for years. (These were all stuck together with silicon.)
