So I bought this bird house awhile ago and couldn't find inspiration to paint it. The other day my daughter and I were watching "Corpse Bride" and then it came to me. Tim Burton style. I aged the wood by beating it up with my carver then applied 2 different colors of gray, painted the accent on the back then grabbed my polymer clay stash. The door, the dead black rose bush, the man eating bush, the skeleton arm, tombstone, and the crow are all polymer. The shingles were done be running carstock through a shredder then clipping them and gluing. It's sealed with poly even though it will never go outside. I'm thinking of attaching a nighlight fixture inside.

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

That's so awesome! I especially love the skeleton arm and the paint job on the back. I think it would look great with a light inside. Maybe you could find a coloured bulb for extra creepiness.

Great job!

I love a bush eating man.  Sorry, I couldn't help it I have a dirty mind and it just popped in there when I read your comment.

I think it's very creative.  I would never think Beetlejuice when looking at an unfinished birdhouse but I will now.  I think a black light or purple light inside would be great.  So will you display it now or wait until Halloween?

It's sitting in my craft room now. My husband is going to attempt to make some bird houses so I can make a collection of them. A little creepy village I suppose.

Oooh, I love the thought of a little spooky village. Like the ones that people decorate with for Christmas, but so much better! Please be sure to post some pics if you make more.
