Bird music house frame (alter it monthly music and art chix turquoise challenge..)



Link
Found some wooden arched house frames in my stash at the back of my cupboard. Have painted the frame in various shades of turquoise, white and a bit of copper. I have added some music papers, bird, grungeboard swirl and flowers with beads for bling. The photo is of my needle felted landscape. I am going to wrap this up carefully as its going to be a present for a family who really like the outdoors..so think they will like it.
The theme at Alter it monthly is music ..go check out the other entries...Over on the Art Chix facebook page they are having a turquoise challenge and the winner gets $20 gift certificate so be sure to check that out too...
