Mixed Media Tags

Hello, Little Birdie Crafts Friends! How are you all doing today?

I’ll be sharing with you how I created these mixed media tags using various material from Little Birdie Crafts.

  • Step 1 : Coat the cardstock with some clear gesso.
  • Step 2 : Add some torn up book pages on the tags and add another coat of Clear Gesso.
  • Step 3 : Paint on some acrylic paint and metallic paint on the tags but leave off enough areas unpainted to show off a bit of those book pages.
  • Step 4 : Once paint is dry, coat random areas of the surface with One-Step Crackle Medium.
  • Step 5 : Once the Crackle Medium is dry, apply a coat of white paint over the crackled areas
  • Step 6 : Add in embellishments and layer them according to your preference, then glue them in place.
  • Step 7: Paint over the embellishments with metallic paints and brush them with some metallic wax
  • Step 8: Add darker paints within the sides of the embellishments to help your design pop out, then add in some micro beads and jute strings to finish off the design. And that’s it!

These are perfect little tokens to give to your friends and family or as trade cards with fellow crafters.

Birthday Flowers – Layered Card

 Hello Friends!

Today I have some lovely watercolor painted flowers for you using the Bloom Vista Stamp set from Little Birdie Crafts.  I tried to jump out of my comfort zone and do something a little different with my card base by choosing a neutral color and background.

To start, I chose the sticker from the ‘Floral Birthday Wishes’ embellishment pack.  I knew I wanted to incorporate this color scheme into my card so off I went to stamp and watercolor.

I wanted to share my watercoloring two ways.  First, I painted all the images using the Watercolor half pan set.  I mixed colors until I had shades I was happy with.  Then, I added some black colored pencil on top for some additional shading.  You can see the shaded version in the left side image.  I really liked how it added some dimension to the flowers and made them appear a little less flat than just watercoloring alone.

Once all the flowers were painted, I then die cut them out using the coordinating framelits that come with this stamp set.  I went to figuring out my design next.

After laying the pieces down on my brown card stock, I felt that I needed just a bit more interest to make the flowers pop off my card.  I went for the Chevron Stencil and some chalk paint.  I mixed the Charcoal, Walnut Cream and Orange Splash paints until I had a brown shade that I liked.  It’s subtle but I think adds that little something I was looking for.

Once I was ready to start gluing, I started adding foam tape on parts of the design to give a real 3D effect.  I left some images flat and used liquid glue, some items one layer of foam tape and a few images two layers of foam tape.  I also let a few elements overhand the edge of my card for effect.

I had a lot of fun planning this card and really enjoyed seeing my end result.  I just adore watercoloring and find it so relaxing.  I hope you get a chance to play in watercolor someday soon as well.  Until next time, have an amazing day!

Special Love – Scrapbook Layout

Hey there crafty friends! Welcome back to the Little Birdie blog – Melissa here with you today and I am sharing a beautiful romantic red and white coloured layout. I hope you like it.

For this layout I have used 3Quarter Designs’ beautiful ‘Forever You’ collection.

I did some background stamping with a script stamp and mahogany ink to start with and then distressed and inked the photo matting pieces.

I cut up some hexagon chipboard and coloured it with gold wax.

I then arranged some elements around my photos, using mounting tape on some to create layers.

I arranged the flowers and used some gold wax on them, and then sprinkled some gold glitter over the top as well and around the layout for some sparkle.

I heat embossed the title and attached it to the bottom of my photo.

I hope you liked this layout, I will be back again very soon with some more crafty inspiration. Until then…happy crafting! 🙂

Fairy Box – Mini Book

Hello my crafty friends! Gunjan here! I am back with another interesting project.

I have made this mini book with “Celebrate Life” Paper pack and Little Birdie’s element sheets. So let’s get started…

Starting with chipboards of 11*11 inches and middle chipboard of 7*11 inches and closing one of 3*11 inches.
Further I covered the chipboard to obtain a mini scrapbook. Both outside and inside.
This seems like a box scrapbook to me which closes at the end 🙂

Using the hinge method, I made hinges to hold the inner pages with a gap of 1.2 cms.

Jumping onto decorating the front part.
I started off with Little Birdie’s beautiful lace on the left.
Some round rings from glitter cardstock ‘Bright’.
Adding a bicycle die cut on the side of the scrapbook.

Pearl drops make everything so pretty and also coming next to the gorgeous handmade Little Birdie flowers.

My absolute favourite flowers works like cherry on the top for me .
I have added these journaling cards/doily cuts inside the pages for personal messages or pictures.
I have left some space inside the pages while sticking it to the hinges.
What a beauty these journaling cards are!!!
Secret pockets are perfect for secret surprises and personalised messages or pictures!
Added some elements inside as well!
The inside pages can be filled with pictures, quotes, and ephemeras accordingly.
We are done with the pretty mini scrapbook!
Here are the final pictures with closer look!♥️🎀

I hope you guys enjoyed as much as I did! Tagging links to the products used below!

Art Journal Pages

Holla! Jinal Savla here…This month I have been experimenting with art journal and various techniques of mixed media… Let me take you through the process.

Step 1: Glued down 2 pages together to create a slightly thicker base and then primed it with Little Birdie’s white gesso.

Step 2: Sprinkled water randomly on the page. Used Vibrant shade chalk paints from the brand with combination of pink, orange, and yellow and blended them together.

Step 3: Used reverse stenciling effect. Before the paint dries I used a stencil to lift some paint off the page with a baby wipe.

Step 4: To add more texture, stamped certain designs/texture randomly to get the depth using LB – pigmented dye ink pad…also stamped ‘Dream’ on the right side of the page.

Step 5: Used Little Birdie’s Gold leaf flakes along with gliding glue to achieve the shimmer sentiment- ‘Shine’

Step 6: Die cut flowers using LB thin cut dies, watercoloured the inside, stuck it slightly keeping one over the other and doodled the outline with 0.5 marker.

Step 7: Added sentiments and a bird element along with sprinkled paint to complete the final look of the page.

Art journaling is super relaxing and I usually enjoy working on it when facing any kind of creative block. You can experiment with different techniques, background, textures and so forth… it gives you complete freedom to express! Hope you too give it a try and experience it for yourself.

Mixed Media Tag

Good morning crafty friends,

I have made a mixed media tag for you.

I started with some gesso and then added a light paint. When this was dry, I added modelling paste through a stencil and made sure it was dry before I added some gold and pink paint.

When all the paint was dry, I used the stamp to add some contrast to the tag and splattered with black and white.

To finish, I used the papers and flowers to make a nice cluster and a beautiful quote.

hope I have inspired you, can’t wait to see what you create
