Spring Birdies Part 1

I have been on a birdie kick lately. I just love 'em! Maybe it is the fact that it snowed in Michigan on the very first day of Spring, and I am going through a Spring withdrawal. Whatever the case is, I have been redoing some dollar store birds lately and I would like to show you one of them. There will be others, so stay tuned.

This little guy started out a little dark for my liking... he's cute in that bumble-bee-turned-bird kind of way, but he is not "springy" enough!


So, based on my mom's advice (she tried this too), I white-washed him.


Then I dry-brushed some nice blue paint on him.
