Vacation – Scrapbook Layout

Hey there crafty people! Welcome back to the Little Birdie blog and thank you so much for stopping by.

Today I am sharing my last DT layout for Little Birdie as the term has now come to an end.

I thought I’d do a travel themed layout this time as I don’t seem to do too many of them, I hope you like it.

For this layout I have used cardstock and some elements from 3Quarter Designs ‘Bon Voyage’ collection.

I did a fair bit of mixed media for the background of this one. I did some stenciling using black ink and stenciling using white gesso, which I then sprinkled embossing powder over the top of while it was still wet.

I also did some stamping using black ink.

I heat embossed the honey comb chipboard and attached it around my photo.

I created a flower cluster around my photo and also heat embossed some postage stamp resins and tucked them under the flowers.

To finish off, I added some glitter to some of the flowers for extra sparkle and also sprinkled some stones over and around the flowers.

I hope you have all enjoyed seeing my creations for the Little Birdie Design Team over the past year, it was a pleasure working with this amazing team.

Art Journal Pages

Holla! Jinal Savla here…This month I have been experimenting with art journal and various techniques of mixed media… Let me take you through the process.

Step 1: Glued down 2 pages together to create a slightly thicker base and then primed it with Little Birdie’s white gesso.

Step 2: Sprinkled water randomly on the page. Used Vibrant shade chalk paints from the brand with combination of pink, orange, and yellow and blended them together.

Step 3: Used reverse stenciling effect. Before the paint dries I used a stencil to lift some paint off the page with a baby wipe.

Step 4: To add more texture, stamped certain designs/texture randomly to get the depth using LB – pigmented dye ink pad…also stamped ‘Dream’ on the right side of the page.

Step 5: Used Little Birdie’s Gold leaf flakes along with gliding glue to achieve the shimmer sentiment- ‘Shine’

Step 6: Die cut flowers using LB thin cut dies, watercoloured the inside, stuck it slightly keeping one over the other and doodled the outline with 0.5 marker.

Step 7: Added sentiments and a bird element along with sprinkled paint to complete the final look of the page.

Art journaling is super relaxing and I usually enjoy working on it when facing any kind of creative block. You can experiment with different techniques, background, textures and so forth… it gives you complete freedom to express! Hope you too give it a try and experience it for yourself.

Together Forever – Scrapbook Layout

Hey there crafty people! Welcome back to the Little Birdie blog.

Today I have a new DT layout, filled with beautiful Autumn colours. I hope you like it.

For this layout I have used the Autumnal Equinox card stock and elements collection from 3Quarter Designs.

I cut some burlap lace and placed it behind my photo – a piece vertically and a piece horizontally.

I arranged some cut out pieces from the collection as photo matting.

I embossed the chipboard borders, used Little Birdie sparkle paste on the chipboard flowers and used metallic paint on the title.

I attached some beautiful Little Birdie flowers, as well as some other unbranded ones in between.

To finish off, I used some glitter accents on some of the flowers and also sprinkled some gold bling over and around the layout.

I hope you were able to find some inspiration from my latest creation – I will be back very soon with some more crafty inspiration. Until then…happy scrapping! 🙂
