Mixed Media Autumn House by Aleksandra

Hello dear Lindy’s friends,

It’s Aleksandra again with you here on Lindy’s blog. I hope you are all doing well. I’m a bit torn these days between making snowy, winter projects and still hanging on a bit to Autumn mood. 🙂 Do you ever have such, but sweet problems? When I picked up a mdf birdhouse base I was first planning to go with winter birdhouse. But when going through my stash I found so many gorgeus Autumn embellishments that I changed my mind. Maybe I should have done both? 🙂 Or maybe the winter one comes later. It is still time.

I hope you will like my idea and my project and it inspires you to create something yourself.


  • First I added some peeled cardboard on my bird house MDF base and added some Graphite texture paste on top, here and there.
  • When the paste was dry I covered everything with a coat of white gesso. I didn’t completely covered it but more dry-brushed it.
  • Then I started adding colors with my brush. I used few different Lindy’s sprays – Grab a Guy Gold, Bayou Boogie Gold and Milk Chocolate brown, to achieve different color variations.
  • I dried everything with a heat gun tool.
  • Then I added some gel medium and sprinkled on top some Tin Roof Rusted embossing powder.
  • I melted the embossing powder with heat gun tool again.
  • Then I dry-brushed over everything with some white gesso.
  • I embellished it with different embellishments, cut-out pictures and flowers.
  • After that I added some white splatters with heavily diluted white acrylic paint.

Here are some detailed photos for you:

I also have a step-by-step video for you to watch.
