Frame Greeting Card

Hello friends! It’s Silvia here, with a new project that I want to share with you! On this occasion I have gone completely out of my comfort zone, and I have decorated this beautiful frame, which I wanted to dedicate to my little ones. They had their birthdays during this confinement, so it has not been possible to celebrate the occasions, but I have made this beautiful birthday frame card, so they never stop dreaming. I used Caribbean Teal metallic paint to paint the frame, cut-out elements from the Boho-dreams collection, with which I made a beautiful 3D montage, layer by layer. In the background I used papers from the Birds & Berries collection, chipboard and finally of course the wonderful Little Birdie flowers, which I like so much. I hope you like it and I wish you a nice day!

Mixed Media Maxi-tag

¡Hola amigos! ¡Es Silvia aquí, con un nuevo proyecto que quiero compartir con ustedes! se aproxima el verano y como no éste nos evoca aires marineros, así que hoy les dejo este maxi-tag, que realicé utilizando técnicas mixedmedia y elementos de la colección de papel de littlebirdie “Song of the Sea”, sobra decir y tod@s los que me conocéis sabéis, que ya simplemente por sus colores, me enamoré locamente, os dejo con el paso a paso de cómo lo realicé y os deseo un bonito día¡

Hello friends! It’s Silvia here with a new project that I want to share with you! Summer is approaching and of course this does not evoke marine airs! So today I have for you this maxi-tag, which I made using mixed media techniques and elements from the Little Birdie paper collection “Songs of the Sea”. Needless to say and all those of you who know me know that, simply because of its colors, I fell madly in love with this. I leave you with the step by step of how I did it and I wish you a nice day!

Lo primero que hice fue aplicar una capa de gesso blanco, a la superficie del tag y al timón, dando a este último un poco de textura, seguido he pintado el timón con color splash “gold rush”, luego con pasta de fibra he añadido texturas al tag, imitando unas olas, para comenzar a conseguir el fondo, que posteriormente para pintarlo hice un pantone de color igual al de la colección y realicé el fondo, que he querido que pareciera un fondo de mar, por último realicé una composición con varios recortes de la colección, flores, y algunos elementos decorativos, como herrajes, perlas, tela de gasa, y para dar naturalidad al proyecto añadí algunas conchas de mar y un poco de musgo

The first thing I did was to apply a layer of white gesso to the surface of the tag and to the rudder, giving the latter a bit of texture. Then I painted the rudder with Color Splash “Gold Rush”. Then with fiber paste, I have added textures to the tag, imitating some waves to start getting the background, which I painted later. To paint it I made a pantone of the same color as the collection and made the background, which I wanted to make it look like a seabed. Finally I made a composition with several cutouts from the collection, flowers, and some decorative elements, such as iron work, pearls, chiffon fabric, and to add naturalness to the project, I added some seashells and some moss.

Espero que os sirva de inspiración para vuestros propios proyectos, nos vemos de nuevo pronto¡¡ bye bye

Hope it inspires you for your own projects, see you again soon! bye bye¡¡

Never Stop Dreaming

Helllloooooooo Everyone…. Amanda here! Today I have a project for you as Guest Designer for Little Birdie and I am super excited!

First up I have done some stenciling onto an 8″x8″ Burlap Panel using Fibre Paste.

Then I painted a layer of white gesso and played around with some of the Color Splash Sprays and spritzed water to dilute them and move them around.

I added a bit of gold metallic paint all over with my finger, glued some cheesecloth for a bit of extra texture, then I coloured a piece of chipboard with Black Gesso and attached it.

I arranged some gorgeous Little Birdie flowers.

I then added some crystal drops around the flowers and some blue rhinestones on the background.

And my project is ready! Here are some final images

Hope you all liked my project! Loads of love and hugs

Amanda Mason
