Snapshots from Italy Layout

Hi everyone!

Lia here today! I decided to share a layout this time with you.

I had patterned cardstock in my stash and gave it a coat of Little Birdie Clear Gel Medium. I then used Little Birdie White Gesso & Modelling Paste in one of the Little Birdie Floral Stencils to add some texture/create a faded background for the photo.
Next, I prepared this photo of my daughter and grandson. I stapled corrugated board and recycled one of the Little Birdie Packaging and used them for the photo background.
Next comes the exciting part ! Once I glued the photo and backing on to the page, I tucked a Little Birdie embellishment behind and added these beautiful flowers from Little Birdie.
I painted some of the flowers with pearl paint just to give it a little luster  and also added a few Pearl Drops.
To finish, I added the Snapshots title which I had coated in white gesso.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed my Layout.

Cruise Buddies Scrapbook Layout

Hi Everyone, Kerrie back for Little Birdie Crafts  with another layout using the Woodland Stories collection This time I have gone for a striking black accent to my layout.I created this layout for a class I taught recently in South Africa here is a quick tutorial

to create my textured background I used black mixed media paste and applied it to a torn piece of black cardstock

to create black texture paste mix Black Gesso with Mixed Media Paste

you want it a nice thick consisity

randomly apply the black texture paste using dot stencil

Once dry I highlighted the stencil detail by rubbing on Rich Gold Metallic Wax  using my finger.

To add some dimension to my layers I painted the edges with black gesso

to create this cluster I used four pennant pieces from the Embellishment pack along with a flower cluster from the pack and a handmade flower

to add texture and richness to the handmade flowers I rubbed on some Rich Gold Metallic Wax to the petals
