Floral Card

Hello friends! Olga here,

Today I have for you a clean and simple card with flower arrangement .

We start with cutting our paper to size of our preference .

Use some distance foams to have different levels to our composition.

Different levels will help you with flower placement. I picked few styles of hot pink flowers that I arranged around my sentiment. For sentiments, I used some Little Birdie foil stickers/embellishments.

As finishing touch add dots from dimensional pearls all around your card.

Key to this project is picking good colors. I just used same colors that where featured on my paper. I’m sure that everyone can find something in Little Birdie’s awesome assortment.

Best regards and have a nice day 🙂
Pozdrawiem i życzę miłego dnia:)

Make a Wish

Hi there Creatives!

This time I really stretch my boundaries and worked with colour out of my comfort zone! I normally like to work with subdued colors, but I though let be adventurous and go for Yellow! This photo taken of my daughter on her seventeenth Birthday is so whimsical and filled with yellows and gold.

“Make a Wish”I created the background on paper from my stash and yellow paper from the Little Birdie Chevrons in Aquarelle Collection. I tore a piece and adhered it a little off side . I applied Mixed Media Paste through the LB Script Stencil.

Step 1

I sprayed Tangerine and Lime Splash Color Splash randomly. I also splattered with watered down white Gesso and Golden Glaze Tinted Metallic Paint across the page.

Step 2

The LB Chipboard is already primed therefor it is easy to paint the Golden Glaze   Tinted Metallic paint on it. I really love the little wreath.

Step 3

To create the layered effect behind the photograph, I used old book paper and an off cut piece of paper from my stash. I tucked the chipboard and leaves in behind the photo and added some leaves. finally I adhered the flowers and some self adhesive pearls.

Step 4

Here are some close up photos:

I hope this leaves you inspired to create and try out these gorgeous Little Birdie products!

Vibrant Mixed Media Canvas

Hi Little Birdie fans,

Here in Canada it’s been a gray week.. with rain and no sun. That’s make me want’s to create a colorful and vibrant canvas to add a little bite of joy and color in my life.

So here a mixed media canvas created just for the pleasure to play with vibrant color 🙂

For my base, I have use a Water color panel 12X14 inches.

I add Grainy texture paste trough the Brick wall stencil with a palette knife.

I have used white Gesso on my chipboard pieces. I choose to apply the first coat before my chipboard was glued on my canvas. For me I found this match easier to do a first coat before they are glued.

Than I have used Gel medium with glass beads to glued down a piece of cheese cloth. By putting a generous amount of Gel medium with glass beads It have created a lot of deep and texture to my canvas. I have use my eat gun to dry the Medium gel.

Once everything was dry, I add some embellishments and my chipboard pieces.

I have cover the the hole canvas with white Gesso and dry it with a heat gun.

 

Then the fun part begun.. I have spray 2 colors of Color splash  Hot pink and black current directly on my canvas altering between each colors. Once I was satisfied with the result, I dry the ink with my heat gun.

To make all the details pop out, I have used a dry brush and Silver metallic paint. I delicately brush the entire canvas to make all the details more apparent.

Than I have use the same colors on my flowers and dry it with the eat gun. Than I have apply the same technique with metallic paint on top of the flowers.

Than I add the flower to my canvas and ”voilà”

It make a lot of joy in my day to create this vibrant colored canvas. As you know I love to create canvas, for me it is a great way to express my creativity. I hope I share a little bite of my canvas passion with you and make you want to create your own !
