Thinking of You – A Card with Mixed Media Touches

Hello Little Birdie friends,

It is Linda here with a pretty, shabby card with a couple of mixed media touches  to share with you today.

I have used a lot of the wonderful products from Little Birdie Crafts – there are so many wonderful choices – I have listed them at the end of the post.

Secure the stencil onto the diecut card front using re-positional tape.  Apply Sculpture Paste – Lavender Ash, using a palette knife – allow to dry completely.
Lightly spritz the background with Color Splash- Ocean Mist. Lightly sponge white paint over the bricks.

NOTE: Make sure to wash the stencil and spatula using warm soapy water straight after using it.

Trim the chipboard in half following the curves of the design and glue to the card base using paper crafting glue.

NOTE:  Crafting Glue can also be added using a spatula – makes it easier when applying onto chipboard.

Adhere the medium flower from the Angelina Moonlight flowers, followed by a small flower on either side. Glue one flower to the center of the chipboard embellishment.

Fussy cut three butterflies from the embellishment sheet in the paper pack going around the edges with black pen.   Glue a flower from the Micro Jewelled Florence to the center of each butterfly; pop up two of the butterflies onto the chipboard using foam squares.

Apply white paint around the edges of the sentiment from the Wishes Words Embellishments and adhere to the center of the card front.  Pop-up the last butterfly to the left of the sentiment .

NOTE: Hand cutting images from patterned paper can give the perfect coordination to items on your project.

Randomly adhere Crystal Drops on to the card front.  Pop-up of the card front onto a slightly larger white A-frame card base.

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.

Shabby Chic Notebook Cover

Hello everyone,

Hilda Skerk here!

Today I bring you a new tutorial…. an altered notebook cover.

I started off with applying white gesso on the base. Once dry, I added one more coat of gesso to cover the background.

Next step was to add Crackle Paste randomly all over the cover. Once the paste was completely dry, I added some Sand Paste.

Once dry, I applied Texture Paste with an stencil.

After that, you can start adding the sprays of your choice. For this project I used Gold Rush, Lemon Zing and Lime Splash and black pigment.

Next I added the chipboard  which I embossed with white embossing powder.

After that, I started to glue all the elements, included leaf die-cuts. Covered with Pearl Drops -Forest Isle to give them more depth.

I Put some Coconut Fibre in the center.

Lastly, I added Vintage Gold Wax to give the project more shine. Added some resin ornaments and flowers and it was done!!

Here are some close-up images…..

 

 

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

Thank  you so much for stopping by

Hilda Skerk
