Yellow and Feathers

Miss us? Here is a quick update on the progress of our "3 Little Birds" cigar box altar. For the outside of the box I am going for the look of the front of a house. And since my husband refused to let me paint our house yellow I am painting my cigar box "house" a nice bright sunny yellow! Here is the first coat. Looks like it will take a few coats to get the color I want and then the windows and doors go on.

On the inside of the box I really went with the bird theme and found some feathers to add to the inside doors. I figured with all the bright yellow on the outside some neutral tones on the doors would work.

Next step is to somehow add the beautiful blue satiny cloth for the sky and come up with a tree and nest scene inside. With the deadline quickly approaching expect more updates soon!
