Mixed Media Art-board – Birds and Berries

Hello dear crafty friends!

It’s my turn today to inspire you for new creations!

I created an art-board from a MDF Arch Window.

First of all I prepared the base using texture paste, stencils and Color Splash.

Then, I decorated it with cut-out elements from the ‘Birds and Berries’ collection, handmade flowers, lace and other small decorations.

I used following LB products in my project:

I wish you inspiration and enjoyment in your work!

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.

Live Your Dreams Card

I’ve never considered myself a good card maker, but it’s easy with just a few Little Birdie Craft supplies!

This is a great card to say ‘Happy Birthday’, ‘Bon Voyage’, ‘Congratulations’, or just to tell a young lady how special she is.

Here are some tips I’ve learned from my fellow design team members:

It’s the details (like real or faux stitching) that make your card stand out:

Always work in layers; lots and lots of layers!

And adding texture with sequins or handmade flowers makes your card extra special:

I hope that inspires all you ‘non-card makers’ out there, to give it a try!

Here are the materials I used:

Boho Dreams 12 X 12 paper pad
Boho Dreams 6 X 6 paper pad
Tulip Bouquet Shabby Chic
Handmade Flowers
