Family Fun Double Page

Hi Everyone Kerrie back with another tutorial for Little Birdie Crafts Blog using their gorgeous Watercolor Floral Ballet Paper Collection which is a gorgeous fresh floral collection on a linen type paper. I have also used a sheet of pink paper from their Pretty in Pink Collection which is also a linen paper. This layout is a great design for when you want to scrap an occasion and get more photos in your album. You can change up the first page and instead of one larger photo pop 2 or 3 smaller ones on to tell more of your story. These photos are from way back in 2004 and are ones that weren’t great or in focus so i kept putting off scrapping them but I decided to just scrap them as I love these memories of our family holiday. Cameras weren’t what they are now and neither were my photography skills which again is all part of  our story. That’s what scrapbooking is all about, documenting our family memories even if it is out of focus!

After cutting up my patterned papers and working out their placement, I added some texture using mixed media paste and bricks stencil.
*Tip make sure if you are creating a double layout make sure you use base cardstock from the same pack, as you see my shades of white are different, which thankfully doesn’t matter as I have covered most of it, same often gores for patterned paper packs as they can be from a different run. I actually didn’t notice until I took the photo by then I thought too late  🙂

You can see I have applied the mixed media paste nice and thick and random giving that natural brick look.
I sprinkled Crystal Glitter over the paste while still wet to add subtle sparkle.

 Snip out Primed Chipboard title and paint with Pink Ballet Chalk Paint, while wet, sprinkle on Crystal Glitter again to give a subtle sparkle to your title.

I then layered everything onto my base pages starting with the base patterned papers and then embellishing with a mix of  fussy cut flower clusters from the Watercolour Floral Ballet fussy cut sheet, handmade flowers, die cut leaves.

I finished off with some splatters using watered down chalk paint.

I also dry brushed Gesso onto the handmade flowers.

You can see the sparkle on the chipbaord title.

Live Well Love Much Laugh Often Layout

Hi Everyone it’s Kerrie back here on the blog!  I hope you are all safe and well. Today I am back with a layout I created for Little Birdie Crafts Blog This layout is one that you can create quite quickly with just a smidge of mixed media and minimal fussy cutting. I have used Little Birdie’sBirds and Berries 12×12 Paper Collection for my layout along with some of their gorgeous handmade flowers and leaves.

To start, apply mixed media medium using a stencil down the right hand side of  layout base. Do this randomly and just in from the edge. To add some sparkle while the mixed media medium is still wet, sprinkle on some crystal glitter, this gives you sparkle without adding colour.

I snipped these frames to create two and painted just one with Lavender Blush Chalk Paint and set aside to dry with the layout base.
Tip: You can lighten your paint by mixing with Gesso if you like, Little Birdie Chipboard is already primed so you don’t need to pre-gesso.

 Cut layers from the patterned paper to suit the photo. Cut lace strip from paper and fussy cut some berry clusters.

Add some muslin, sisal fibre or cotton to add texture to your clusters.

Finish off with some splatters using Hot Pink and Black Currant Color Splash sprays, you can either just use the nozzle or a splatter brush.
