StencilGirl Guest Designer Suze Weinberg

Welcome to Guest Designer

I knew I wanted to create something different for me... Everyone associates me with either UTEE or jewelry making & when I found these darling bird houses in a local store I knew this was the "it" project!

The bird houses came unassembled making it so easy to paint. 

On the first bird house I used Ranger Adirondack® Acrylic Paint Dabbers from the Tim Holtz line,  in assorted colors
I stenciled over the dry paint using a Ranger Archival Ink™ Pad in Jet Black which was applied using a sponge.
When everything was completed ( inside AND out) it was spray sealed to go outside.
Then I added the rubber stamp & bird embellishment & when everything was dry I hung it in my yard!

The 2nd house was painted with Tim Holtz® Distress Stains™ Giving the wood more of a "barn" finish. Same techniques as first.

Now I'm simply waiting for the lovely birdies to make their home!!

Today's Deal of the Day over at StencilGirl Products is the 
Hebrew Calligraphy that I used on this piece.

  18. Wow! So good to see Suze here! (Had taken classes she taught years ago, when she was teaching at some stamp stores here in northern IL. and various stamp conventions). I also love bird houses, and yours are so inspiring and creative! I think I will have to make a project of it myself this summer.

  19. So happy to see you looking so great. You were my introduction to the stamping "thing" at the Book Arts Roundtable in South Orange. Miss you. Please note: not a downer but the birds don't like homes that attract attention so you might have to wait for some weathering. Elaine Gongora
