"Spring" wall hanging with PLAID stencil

Hello... and welcome to my page.
I am sharing my DT project with Crafters Corner and today I am showcasing some of the PLAID chalk pints and their Birds stencil.
This what I started off with....

I had an empty mdf plank with me and decided to play with it.

Here is how the plain plank looks after my play with the paints!

With "spring" being the flavor I decided to have little chirpeees outside my studio and hence went ahead  making a sign board. I dint want the usual "welcome" sign and decided to do it this way.
 I have used a range of chalk paints from PLAID here and also their birds stencil!

I have a full length tutorial here on how to create the FAUX PALETTE look with paints.

I so love these 2 little birds...

I did some coloring and shading using their Multi surface paints.

 To finish off, I added some color splats and then sealed it with the outdoor mate sealer from Plaid.

This is how they look outside my studio!

I made a hanging planter with a little coconut shell so the birds feel at home!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I would like to play along these challenges...
