Love This Life – Mixed Media Palette

Hi everyone,

Saadia here with a new mixed media project. It has lots of Little Birdie Crafts beautiful flowers, glitter and texture. I hope you like it.

 

 

Let’s start our project:

I applied a diluted coat of 2 in 1 Mixed Media Paste to an oval wooden paint palette.

 

Next I mixed Texture Sand with Mixed Media Paste and applied it through the ‘Script’ stencil. After drying it with a heat tool, I applied the same paste through ‘Irregular dots’ stencil. 

I then applied different Color Splash sprays and chalk paints.

After that layer, I glued Sisal fiber, scrap paper and old paint brushes as I pleased.

Then, I added lots of Little Birdie Crafts beautiful flowers, buds and chipboard shapes. I heat embossed the chipboard shape with Copper Embossing Powder.

Lastly I added few microbeads, Little Birdie Crafts Fairy Sparkle glitter and a chipboard quote.

Dreamer – A Mixed Media Canvas

Hi Everyone,

Saadia here with my first DT post for Little Birdie blog. I am extremely happy to be in the Little Birdie team and looking forward to inspire you with some exciting projects!

Today, I am sharing a mixed media canvas.

Let’s start the project:

At first, I glued some scrap papers on a 8x 10 inches stretched canvas. Initially my plan was to keep the writing visible and use very little color but it changed as I worked along. That’s the beauty of mixed media….you have so much to explore!!

Next, I applied a diluted coat of Little Birdie Mixed Media 2 in 1 paste white, to the entire canvas. This mixed media paste can be used as a gesso as well as a modelling paste.

Thereafter, I mixed Texture Sand with Gel medium – matte and applied it with a palette knife on my canvas. I mostly applied it to the edges to create a border. This texture sand can be mixed with gesso, modeling paste, gel medium and paints for additional texture….and gives beautiful results!

Next, I painted the canvas with chalk paints.

I applied burnt umber and raw sienna acrylic paints to the borders on the canvas.

I also applied the same acrylic paints to the chipboard shapes and a die-cut from my stash.

After the paints dried, I glued paper pieces onto the canvas.

In the next step I glued my chipboard shapes, die cut pieces and flowers.

Lastly, I added a chipboard quote from my stash and some beautiful Fairy Sparkle glitter. I applied the glitter only at few places, just for the sparkly effect!

Finished piece :

 

That’s all for today. I hope you liked it.

Thank  you so much for stopping by…see you next time

Take care,

Saadia Nawaz

A Flower Shop – Decor Project

Hello everyone!

This is @HildaSkerk from Barcelona. I’m very happy and honored to be part of this amazing and talented team!!! Thank you so much Rashmi Harish & Harish Closepet for make me part of the new Little Birdie Crafts Design Team.

Today I’m sharing with you my first project.  A flower shop!

 

To create this lovely piece, you will need the following supplies:

Supplies from Little Birdie Crafts

. Texture Sand

. Fiber Paste

. Mixed Media acrylic paint – Wild Moss

. Tinted Metallic paint – Caribbean Teal

. Acrylic soft gel Medium

. Chipboard – Leafy Border

. Flowers – Helena 12 mm, Pastel

. Bouquet de Fleurs

. Succulent Showcase

. Succulent Patio

. Succulent Cactus Combo

. Succulent Shelf

. Succulent Garden Collection

Other Supplies 

. Gesso

. Texture Paste

. Acrylic Paint Oxide

. Metallic Wax – Bronze Age

. Metallic Wax – Vintage Gold

. Wood Shop Designed by me

The first step is to apply a coat of white gesso, once dry, you have to mix Little Birdie Texture Paste with Texture Sand and apply it with a palette knife.

On the roof I have applied Fiber Paste for a textured effect.

Once it dried, I added the first layer of colour. I started with chalk paint- Wild Moss.

Then with a dry brush I added a layer of Tinted Metallic paint – Caribbean Teal all over the surface followed by Oxide Metallic paint. Between layers I used a wet wipe to remove the excess paint.

To create the background, I choose the Succulent Garden paper and I made two shelves of chipboard which I stuck inside.

To finish off I have randomly applied  Bronze and Vintage gold wax  with a dry brush to highlight the background.

Finally I glued all the embellishments.

Here are some closeup photos:

I hope this leaves you inspired to create and try out these gorgeous Little Birdie products.

Love & hugs
