Altered Jar

Hello my dear friends, Hilda here today to share a pretty flowery jar with the beautiful Little Birdie Rosalind Moon light collection.

1 – For this project i choose a glass jar. I started by giving a layer of white gesso
2 – Then i apply Stone texture paste randomly to cover the jar.
Once dry, i used Fiber paste to get some more texture and volume.
After the paste has completely dried i apply Crackle Paste, this mixture of Fiber and Crackle paste has an interesting result, because the cracks got more deeper and the fibers of the paste stood out more.
Then i started applying the colors, for this i used Color Splash sprays, Ocean mist, Mocha and Gold rush.
When the jar was dry, i started to create the composition with the beautiful Rosalind collection i also added some leaves, metallic elements.
To give it more texture i added mini Pellets all around the composition and finished spraying the same Splash colors.
I hope you you’ve enjoyed this tutorial and get inspired by it. Thanks for joining me today and see you next time, take care and be safe.
Hilda Skerk

Refresh Your Home for Summer with these Chic Denim Pillows

Summer has arrived, yay! With the arrival of summer you may be wanting to refresh your home and bring a cool, casual element into your décor.  Denim is a timeless, classic and totally on trend choice!

Denim pillows and furnishings are an easy way to create a welcoming, fresh summer vibe. For a bold, bohemian look, revamp your pillows with fabulous denim accents from Little Birdie Crafts.  Their range of dark blue through to white washed denim flowers and other embellishments are sure to give your home a relaxed sense of calm and serenity.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Little Birdie Denim Accents

*Denim Beaded Butterflies 6pcs are also a pretty alternative to flowers

**I also chose one with a simple indigo wash line down the middle

Step 1: Gather your materials, and start by pressing/ironing the pillow cover.

Step 2: Decide on the placement of the denim flowers and/or denim strip on your pillow cover. I suggest smaller flowers on the outside edges, larger in the central portion of the design.

Step 3: Peel off any sticky foam backings (some flowers have these for easy attachment to paper, we are going to attach more permanently)

Step 4: Once you are happy with the layout, use fabric glue to adhere the flowers and/or strip of denim to the pillow cover. This will create a solid lasting attachment.

 

The denim strip can be glued (for an easy no sew option) or stitched onto the pillow.  I left mine without a finishing hem, retaining a more distressed, casual look.

Step 5. Fill the cover with a pillow, if any part of the pillow looks too empty, add additional flowers with fabric glue.

You may also wish to create a design on the reverse side of the pillow.

Consider other fun denim accents like butterflies for a whimsical look!

Vary the shades of denim you use to subtly adopt the trend without overwhelming the space. Then, layer the finished pillows with more neutral and indigo accent pillows, choose contrasting stripes, faux fur textures and quirky patterned blankets for a true boho look!

The finished pillows are just the right accessory to a seating area or bedroom. Prioritize comfort and cozy! All the supplies you need to create these beautiful denim pillow accents are available at Little Birdie Crafts.

Stay on trend this summer, and enjoy this fun and easy refresh! – Natalie
