Dainty Planner Cover

Hi, Little Birdie Crafts Friends! Welcome!

In this post, I’m sharing with you this mixed media planner cover I made using different supplies from Little Birdie Crafts.

I love mixing and matching different products on my projects so it’s such a fun thing to find almost everything I need at Little Birdie Crafts’ website.

I made this so I have an inspiring cover on a new planner I’m setting up for the last quarter of the year.

One of my favorite items to use on my mixed media projects even as small as this one, are the metallic waxes. They just amp up the design you create and makes it look so well put together!

Electronic Journal

Hello everyone Hilda here, I’m back today with a new project an ‘Electronic Journal’ with touches of industrial style.

I had a journal structure that I wanted to give a different look to.

First I covered it with a coat of black gesso.

Once dry, I chose the elements to make the composition and glued them with heavy body gel, which is perfect for this kind of material.

On the back cover I applied an electronic stencil.
Then I stuck more electronic elements to the composition .
I covered it with black gesso again.
To give it colour, I applied Glimmer Moss and and Silver Glitz wax.
For the inside of the journal, I used The Classic Gentleman paper collection.
And this is the result, I hope you liked it! I will see you soon
Hugs
Hilda

Little Birdie Cafe – Mixed Media Wall Hanging

Hello, Friends! If you’re looking for a way to escape the summer heat, why not spend a leisurely hour in the craft room? It’s so relaxing to pull out your favorite paper pretties and make something beautiful!

Woodland Café is a whimsical collection that transports you away from the hustle and bustle and into the serenity of the country. I’ve paired it up with charming Birdie Café Decoupage Papers, die cut ephemera, Heleen Flowers and lots of bits and bobs. This 8″ x 8′ wall hanging is perfect for the summer months.

Here are a few simple tips for adding mixed media touches to your projects.

  • Distressed edges add wonderful texture to the edges of cardstock.  Use a distressing tool, or simply run the blade of your scissors along the edge of the paper.  Little tears are even better!
  • Chalk paint is one of my favorite mediums.  You can paint edges, paint metals, spatter on the finished project, or brush on flower petals to add a wonderful shabby feel to your project.
  • Machine stitching adds texture, subtle pattern and helps to frame a piece.
  • Check your spice cabinet!  Mustard seeds and green peppercorns lend an organic feel to the composition.

Little Birdie Metallic Wax adds another layer of distressing to painted metals and resin.  I just rub it on lightly with my finger.  Primed chipboard can be used as is, rubbed with metallic wax, or painted and spritzed with mica sprays.  All these elements work together to make mixed media easy to do!
