Little Birdie’s Florist Shop

Hi dear friends,

My name is Hilda Skerk and I’m delighted to be guest designing for little Birdie Craft. I live in Barcelona, the city of modernism.

I work full time as a crafter. I love to altered all kind of objects, and more than anything create my own supports.

This time I’m bringing you a miniature florist shop that i designed it on silhouette cameo and decorated it with the beautiful mini succulents and flowers.

First I added white gesso for priming. After that I painted it with Matt Acrylic Rainy Day, for an aged look i distressed all the surface.

For the inner wall I used  texture brew paper. I decorate the shelves with Little Birdie succulent flowers, love them you can use them in any kind of style, steampunk, shabby, grunge. And i added some other flowers. I design the poster with vinyl letters.

I hope you’ll like my project and thank you so much for joining me here today on Little Birdie Crafts.

Vintage cards with a pop of colours!

Hello friends!

This is Anila!

I am on the blog today, sharing a couple of Vintage cards with a pop of colours!

I am using the Vintage Reflections paper pack for my cards here!

I took a 6″x6″ white card base and a smaller white panel. I began by cutting a paper from the pack into smaller pieces. Distressed the edges.

Adhered, the pattern papers to the white cards. Mounted/layered the smaller matted piece on the base using foam adhesive.

I collected some embellishments like flowers, die-cut leaves using Birdcage thin cut die, a stamped sentiment, cheesecloth, sisal fibre and a die-cut doily using Ornate doily die

Here are some images of the finished card.

 

I made one more card on the similar lines. This time I layered a rectangle over the Square card base. Matted and mounted it the same way.

Embellished using similar elements, only replaced the doily with a strip of punched border.

I kept both the cards simple with the centered focal elements. Lastly, added a few matching sequins to complete the card.

That’s all for today!

Hope you liked the card.

Altered Journal Cover

Hi! Back again with an altered Journal cover using LB Flowers and Sprays! In this post I wanted to talk about the flowers!

Little Birdie makes absolutely wonderful flowers in all shapes,sizes and colors. But what I love most are the white ones! they take the color splash sprays so beautifully! I can drench them in color and water and these flowers just hold up great! I very much recommend these! Now on to this very simple journal cover!

I started off with the flower Stencil applying it to the LB Journal. I used the 2-1 mixed media paste. Taking the (Grape Crush) Color splash and adding a few spritz to the gesso to give it a light tint.

Next I used LB Gel to adhere my embellishments and flowers. I gave everything except the flowers a coat of clear gesso.

Here I add my Color Splash sprays in (Grape Crush) (Ocean Mist) (Hot Pink) (Lime Splash)  and I take the nozzle out of the (Tangerine) and run it along the edges.

After everything is completely dry, I dry bush the elements to bring out all the texture! I added some gems quotes and glitter to finish it off! Hope you all enjoy it!
