Shabby Girl’s Birthday Card

Hello dear Little Birdie fans!

It’s Tracey here to share my first project in 2021. Our sweet little granddaughter is turning 4 next month, so I created this shabby mixed media card for her featuring the Celebrate Life collection. These images are ideal to celebrate with the banner and cupcake designs, and isn’t the Ornate Number 4 chipboard piece simply perfect for this card? I have a DIY video tutorial to share showing my entire creative process.

In this DIY mixed media card tutorial learn how to:
~ Dry brush background and flowers with white gesso
~ Color chipboard with metallic paint
~ Learn my creative process for arranging embellishments
~ Alter a metal jewelry piece with gesso and paint
~ Add texture with craft pellets and metal microbeads

Enjoy!

Tips and Techniques

I used the following gorgeous Little Birdie Flowers for this sweet floral cluster: Celebrate Life: Gianna; Kimberley; Wendy; Marisa; Sparkle Florettes; Shabby Chic: Queenie; Micro Roses; Agnes.

The flowers have been dry brushed with white gesso before adhering.

This Ornate Number 4 is so perfect for a girl’s birthday card! It is painted with Little Birdie Shimmer Sherbet Tinted Metallic Paint.

This little bee charm and bow winding around the cluster add a bit of whimsy.

I’ve tucked in several images from the Celebrate Life Ephemera Pack. Isn’t the glitter gorgeous, and what little girl wouldn’t adore a cupcake on her birthday card?

Here’s a view of the sentiment stamped on vellum and the top of the cluster with these amazing flowers. You can see the dry brushing on the background and flowers here.

I adore the texture achieved by adding bits around the edges of the flowers. Here I have pearls, micro beads, and craft pellets. the white charm is a jewelry piece from my stash that I altered with gesso and a touch of Shimmery Sherbet paint.

Summer Notebook

Hello, Friends!! Waiting for the summer time, today I bring you a sailor project, a notebook in which I used cardboard to make the slats on the wall and a hatch with the silhouette cameo, I hope you like it.

Step by step process

First cut cardboard strips to fit in the notebook.


Once the strips were glued I gave a layer of white gesso.

To give texture, I first applied crackle paste randomly.

Once dry, I applied embossing paste with a palette knife, it gives a voluminous effect.

And on the back cover I applied Grainy Texture Paste.

Once dry, I started applying Color splash to color the project, first Ocean Mist,

And then Gold Rush.

I colored the hatch with waxes, Aqua Sheen, Silver Glitz and distress ink. For the background, I used a resin compass that was also colored with the same colors.

And this is the result, Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed. I will see you in the next tutorial. Have a wonderful week and take good care of yourself.
