Hey there crafty friends! Welcome back to the Little Birdie blog!
I hope all is well in your part of the world. We have been in lockdown here in NSW, Australia for the past couple of months, so I guess you could say I’ve had a lot of crafting time lately!
And here is one of my creations, which I created for Little Birdie. I have done something very different with this layout, something I don’t think I have ever done before and stuck with light whites and greys only. I wasn’t sure how this was going to turn out, and I think it has a vintage feel to it but I actually really love it and I hope you do too.
So to start this layout, I used a piece of grey checkered card stock from 49 and Market’s ‘Etheral’ collection. I then took a piece of light grey floral card stock from Kaisercraft’s ‘Cottage Rose’ collection and cut a border from it that I then attached onto my checkered card stock.
I then attached some lace trimming to the outside of the border I just stuck down and then also attached some on the inside of the border but only at the top and bottom.
I then used a Royal Damask style stencil for my background with white 3D textured modelling paste and while it was still wet I sprinkled some glitter over the top for some sparkle.
I used 4 cut out pieces from Kaisercraft’s ‘Greenhouse’ collectables and embossed the 2 shapes with some clear embossing powder for some shine.
I used some liquid pearls for the chipboard frame and also for the title.
I created a flower cluster beneath my images using some gorgeous flowers from Little Birdie and added some glitter accents to some of them for some sparkle.
I really hope you found some inspiration from this layout, feel free to leave a comment below – I would love to hear your thoughts.
I will be back again very soon with some more crafty inspiration but until then…happy crafting! 🙂
