Mixed Media Monday - Numbers

Numbers is the theme chosen by the wonderful Heather, as our challenge on Mixed Media Monday this week. What a great theme - my mind was buzzing with all sorts of ideas about what I wanted to do for this one. I knew that I needed to go with a vintage feel again, after a couple of bright weeks. I cut the house out of chipboard, and covered it with papers and distressed it. I added a Collections chipboard frame with different things in the "windows", a rusted owl and star etc., to complete the "bird house". Lots of fun - thanks for such a fun theme, Heather!
