Dollar Tree Bird Makeover

I finally found some of those cute little birds at Dollar Tree for $1 each! Birds sing spring to me and I have spring fever.

The only problem is, my Dollar Tree only had the gold birdie and I really didn't like the color.

So I decided to give her a makeover and dry brushed her with some #320 Jamaican Sea Folk Art paint by Plaid. I LOVE Plaid's Folk Art acrylic paints for this technique.

What a difference paint can make! Now she needs a nest.
