Grunge Fairy – Mixed Media Decor

Hi everyone,

Saadia here with a mixed media project made with new texture elements and waxes from Little Birdie Crafts.

I hope you like it and get inspired.

Let’s start our project:

I applied a thick layer of 2 in 1 Mixed Media Paste- White on an old vinyl record.

When the mixed media paste dried, I applied Little Birdie’s Stone Texture Paste (Graphite) with a palette knife.

After that, I arranged and glued the embellishments with heavy body gel medium.

Next, I covered everything with a coat of black gesso.

I colored the project with Little Birdie’s new metallic waxes ( Vintage Gold, Aqua Sheen and Silver Glitz). I applied them with a brush in layers. Glued Fairy sparkle – Mocha in different areas as a finishing touch.

 

 

That’s all for now.

Thank you for visiting.

Take care and keep crafting.

Believe In Yourself – An Art Journal Spread

Hi everyone,

Saadia here. I want to share an art journal spread with you. I hope you like it and get inspired.

Let’s start our journal spread:

I applied a layer of  diluted 2 in 1 Mixed Media Paste (white) on my journal pages. Next, I applied chalk paints (Sailing Sky, Orange, Butternut and Misty Rose) with my fingers. I added a little bit of water to help the paint move.

After that, I did some stencil work. I applied chalk paint Sailing Sky through the Irregular Dot stencil, with a cosmetic sponge.

Next, I applied ink spray onto Little Birdie Crafts watercolor paper tags. These tags are made of heavy weight watercolor paper and take the ink sprays and paints well. I colored a lot of tags which I will use in a future project.

After that, I added blue paint dots on the tag and stenciled white paint through the ‘Script’ stencil.

 

Next, I painted a chipboard shape (Little Birdie Crafts Primed chipboard shape Beehive) with Sailing Sky chalk paint.

I then, assembled and glued everything with Little Birdie Crafts soft gel medium.

 

That’s all for now.

Thank you for your precious time.

Take care and keep crafting.

Saadia Nawaz.

Steampunk Box

Hello everyone, Hilda here, sharing a new project, an altered steampuk box.

So let’s get started!

To begin with, I painted the box with black gesso.

Then I glued some chipboards from my stash with gel medium,  creating a background with different shapes.

Then I painted some chipboard gears and other embellishments with black gesso.

I brushed the box with a dry brush with white gesso.

Once dry, Imade the composition similar to a mechanism and glued all the elements with gel medium.

Next, I colored the box with Color Splash Sprays, Lime Splash, Gold Rush, Blackcurrant and Lemon Zing.

To finished off the project, I added  touches of Brushed Iron and Vintage Gold wax.

Here are a few close-up images……….

That´s all for now and thank you for visiting.

Best wishes

Hilda Skerk
