Ciao a tutti! Come sempre ogni primo venerdì del mese, A Vintage Journey Challenge Blog vi suggerisce un tema su cui lavorare nelle prossime settimane! Questa volta il tema è Rustic Charm proposto da Astrid! Rustico descrive un design naturale, ruvido, invecchiato... Ci piacerebbe vedervi creare un progetto utilizzando questi elementi: pensate alle trame ispirate alla natura e ai colori semplici e terrosi. Ricordate di creare il vostro progetto in uno dei nostri stili preferiti: vintage, shabby, mixed media, art journaling, industrial, timeworn o steampunk.

Hi everyone! As always every first Friday of the month A Vintage Journey Challenge Blog suggests you a theme to work on over the next few weeks!
Rustic describes a design that is natural, rough, aged and casual. We would love to see you create a project using these elements: think nature inspired textures and simple and earthy colors.  Just remember to create your project in one of our preferred styles: vintage, shabby, mixed media, art journaling, industrial, timeworn or steampunk.

Io mi sono ispirata alla natura e ho realizzato una casetta in finto legno con un piccolo abitante colorato!
Di seguito trovate le foto del tutorial per realizzare il finto legno e la base della casetta!

I was inspired by nature and I made a faux wood tiny birdhouse with a small colored inhabitant!
Below are the photos of the tutorial to make the faux wood and the base of the house!

Questa volta ho cercato di fare la foto ad ogni passaggio... ma confesso che per me è difficilissimo, io lavoro quaasi sempre d'istinto... e quindi quando comincio vado avanti senza fermarmi... per cui non è facile ricordarmi di forotografare ogni volta!
L'ultima foto del tutorial l'ho fatta perchè volevo farvi sapere che a volte io vado a cercare nei miei ritagli rmasti da lavori precedenti... non butto via nulla e quasi sempre anche un piccolissimo pezzetto già colorato trova il suo utilizzo in un nuovo progetto! Ecco l'uccellino è stato " costruito" così!

This time I tried to take the photo at every step ... but I confess that it is very difficult for me, I work always instinctively ... and therefore when I start I go on without stopping ... so it is not easy to remember to take pictures every time!
The last photo of the tutorial I made it because I wanted to let you know that sometimes I go to look in my scraps left from previous works ... I do not throw anything away and almost always even a very small piece already painted finds a new life in a new project! In this project the little bird was "built" like this!

Vi aspettiamo sul Blog di A Vintage journey per ispirarvi con tanti progetti, diversi e davvero bellissimi!
Grazie per essere passati, ci vediamo qui presto!

We are waiting for you on the A Vintage journey Blog to inspire you with many different and really wonderful projects!
Thanks for stopping by, see you here soon!

What a wonderfully rustic birdhouse and bird you created Barbara - you are a master at mixing colors for your woodgrain look - great texture with the stencil and paste too! Your bird and blooms are beautifully colored as well! xx

Great birdhouse, thank you for the steps in making this project. I know what you mean by you just work on and forget to record what you have done. You just get "into the flow" and don't want to stop :) Enjoy your day and stay well and safe.

Love those scrumptious wood-look textures, especially with the little turquoise accents. Your bird looks great - the warm burnt orange colour tones on him and the flowers are lovely. And the roof tiles are fabulous!

Your bird and bird house is indeed rustically charming , Barbara. Love your use of colour, texture and dies. Love how you 'thatched' the roof.
An absolutely gorgeous project .
