Decorated Frame

¡Hola amigos! ¡Es Silvia aquí, con un nuevo proyecto que quiero compartir con ustedes!

Espero que les guste tanto como a mí, una vez más he disfrutado de los productos de Littlebirdie, con su pintura tiza que me ha enamorado, tanto por su color como por su calidez y suavidad al pintar, les dejo el paso a paso, y verás qué fácil es, que tengan un bonito día¡¡

Hello friends! It’s Silvia here, with a new project that I want to share with you! I hope you like it as much as I do! once again I have enjoyed the products of Little Birdie. I have fallen in love with its chalk paints. I adore the colors, warmth and the softness when painting with them. Here is the step by step, and You will see how easy it is. Have a nice day!

Paso 1

El primer paso de nuestro proyecto ser√° pintar todo el marco con pintura tiza color Rose Blush, y secar muy bien

The first step of our project will be to paint the entire frame with Rose Blush chalk paint, and dry very well.

Paso 2

Seguidamente y para resaltar los relieves, he utilizado color splash de color grape crush, ya sabéis que siempre me ayudo de un spray con agua para ir difuminando el pigmento, por toda la superficie

Subsequently, to highlight the reliefs, I used Grape Crush shade of Color Splash. You know that I always help myself with a spray of water to diffuse the pigment, all over the surface.

Paso 3

A continuación he aplicado de nuevo con la técnica de pincel seco pintura tiza color rose blush y cuando se ha secado totalmente de la misma forma he aplicado pintura metálica color twany glint, que tanto me gusta porque su color al natural es increíble.

Then I have applied Rose Blush chalk paint again with the dry brush technique. When it dried completely dried, in the same way I have applied metallic paint color Tawny Glint, which I like so much because its natural color is incredible.

Paso 4

Por √ļltimo, para la decoraci√≥n he usado la colecci√≥n de papeles “Birds & Berries”, que es increiblemente preciosa y muy shabby, por lo que por supuesto tampoco pod√≠an faltar las flores que ya sab√©is que son uno de mis elementos preferidos.

Finally, for decoration I have used the collection of papers “Birds & Berries”, which is incredibly beautiful and very shabby. And of course the flowers that you already know are one of my favorite elements could not be missing either.

Espero que os haya gustado el resultado, y que os sirva de inspiración para vuestros propios proyectos. Bye¡¡¡

I hope you liked the result, and that it will serve as inspiration for your own projects. Goodbye¬°¬°¬°

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.
