Hello dear Little Birdie Crafts fans! It’s Tracey here with a new project to inspire you. I have a dear friend who’s going through a rough time recently, and I created this encouraging canvas for her. This sweet sentiment from the ‘Birds and Berries’ ephemera pack is just perfect because everyday is truly a new beginning. I just adore how easy it is to mix and match gorgeous Little Birdie flowers and embellishments to create such a beautiful arrangement.
I’ve used a variety of mixed media techniques to create the canvas background and to color and add texture to chipboard and resin embellishments. I hope you’ll enjoy learning with me as you view this video with lots of details and voice instructions.
Tips and Techniques:
Little Birdie Grainy Texture Paste is applied through the beautiful Fleur-di-lis Trellis Stencil and spritzed with Black Current and Grape Crush Color Splash. Once dry, I added a little script stamping with permanent ink and color is added to the edges.
This photos is at an angle so you can see all the dimension created by layering chipboard, resin, ephemera, and flowers. Metal Microbeads and tiny seed beads are adhered to the flowers and background with Soft Gel Medium to add texture.
