Not A Peep On A Frosted Morn’

Hello friends!! Here’s a DIY Home Décor piece using a Basically Bare acrylic bird, all nestled in for the winter. I’ve simply added a layer of Glossy Accents to the acrylic bird, place Authentique paper behind it and let it dry. Trim the paper from the edges and she’s ready to nest!  The stencil is Tattered Angels and the Glass Bead Gel Medium is by Golden.  I’ve added a vintage image, envelopes and Baker’s Twine by Really Reasonable Ribbon.


Using a stencil, apply Glass Bead Gel Medium over the entire surface of the glass. Let dry.



Drizzle a little molding paste on the nest as well as the envelopes.
