Altered wooden birdhouse with Gelatos® colors

Hello to everyone, Giovanna here, for the first time as a Guest Design Team member, and I am
pretty excited!
I made this very project for the DT call, so it is a lucky one for me. There's a little funny story
behind it...

This wooden bird house was a kit for kids, with a paintbrush and acrylic paints attached,
bought for my little cousin. As long as she painted it thoroughly, with flowers and primary
colours, and left rejected in the garden, I sort of stolen it and made a little redo. I am pretty happy with the result, I love the little bird peeking from the hole and the steampunk feeling. I used Gelatos® colors in several different ways, these are so versatile, and perfect for every MixedMedia project.

This is how I made the birdhouse, step by step:
