‘Perfect Together’ Scrapbook Layout

Hi there Creatives!

Ezme here today. The vibrant colours of the Aqua Medley Collection are one of my favourites from Little Birdie Crafts!

For this single page layout, I chose to use a white card-stock background with some mixed media elements.

This is how I created the layout:

I adhered the white card-stock to one of the Aqua Medley patterned paper. I trimmed the card-stock 0.5″ smaller. I painted the background first with Gesso and then added a little watercolor paint.

The Silver Sage Sparkle Paste is one of my favourite sparkle pastes, and so is the Script Stencil. I added the Sparkle Paste to add more layers to the background.

I toned the paper down with white Gesso to use as layering behind the photograph.

The flowers needed some sparkle too, so I repeated the Silver Sage Sparkle Paste on the stamens and toned the green leaves down with white Gesso.

The chipboard embellishment was painted with Terracotta Chalk Paint.

The different sized patterned paper layers were adhered with Gel Medium and I also used the heavy bodied Gel Medium to adhere the Sisal behind the photograph. The photograph was raised on two layers of cardboard.

I created my own embellishments with glass domes and images from the patterned paper. I adhered the dome with gel Medium, let it dry and then cut it out with a small sharp scissor.

The small butterflies were fussy cut from the Aqua Medley embellishment page and the rust ribbon is from my stash.

Snowy Purple Layout

Hi Everyone,

For my final project this month I decided to do a layout  using these beautiful purple Little Birdie flowers.

 

I chose a 12×12″  sheet lilac  paper and coated it lightly with Little Birdie gesso. I then used  assorted stencils for textures all around the centre of the page,- which looked like blobs of snow…
Using crackle patterned stamp and black ink, I  stamped  to give a few cracked shapes and then  sprayed purple and a blue/green spray for depth.
I added Little Birdie mixed media stones to the textures I had already created and then I laid a torn scrap of purple patterned paper as a mount for the photo.
 
I laid the photo on the prepared mount and added some chipboard pieces.
Next, I gathered a few twigs from my garden and dipped them into white acrylic. I also painted the flowers to them give a snowy look.
For the final part, my favourite part…I arranged the flowers and twigs, added some 3D balls and gave everything a little dab of white acrylic paint.
Thanks for looking!

Shabby Chic Sideboard

Hello Everyone,

Hilda here, with a new tutorial. It’s a beautiful plant sideboard.

Step 1

Designed this sideboard specially for this project. I made it out of cardboard.

I covered it with white gesso.

Step 2

Once dry, I applied Crackle Paste over it randomly.

Step 3

To give it more texture, I applied Stone Texture Paste all over the surface, including doors and stalls that are made from cardboard too.

 

Step 4

I applied some black ink on the outside of the sideboard to highlight the cracks.

Step 5

To give it more color, I sprayed, turquoise, green, lime and lemon spray.

Step 6

Once dry, I glued chipboards on the side of the sideboard and on the doors. For the decoration, I chose beautiful miniature plants from the botanical collection. I love them. They’re so real, and chose some flowers for the roof.

I also used some glitter paste on the pots and flowers

Step 7

Here is the end result. I hope you like it. See you soon!

Hugs

Hilda Skerk
