Spring: A Fresh Beginning


Hello, sweet friends!!

Here I am sharing my project which I made using supplies from Lindy's Gang and Itsy Bitsy store.
I enjoyed a lot making my very first Mixed Media Tags.

This project is my entry for PRIKA All About Crafts- Blog, and as per theme of current challenge,  "Old Turned New". 


I was so much inspired with the mood board of March Challenge at Lindy's Gang blog.  These colors are so springy and eye soothing. So I decided to choose the color scheme as per Lindy's color challenge graphic, because I wanna play with them too. 

Here I am sharing a short and crisp tutorial for these Mixed Media Tags.

Started making these cute tags by using some old cerelac boxes, as these box are so good in density. 


Done some die cutting using metal dies.



Then covered the tags using Mont Marte modelling paste, created some texture (streaks) with the help of brush.



Done some more stenciling to add some phrases to my tags, as I wanted to gift these tags to one of my crafty friend.
Once dry, I used loads of Lindy's sprays and magical shakers to give them colorful background and then after drying properly, outlined the some texture along with phrases using black permanent (OHP) maker. 


Placed some little birdie flowers along with some die cut elements. I used some Lindy's sprays for coloring the die cuts and cheese cloth pieces which added by me decorate these cute tags.

At the end, I used some sentiments from Tim Holtz idea-Ology metallic stickers to finish these cute tags.

And here are some more close ups:

So Sweet of You: Little Birdie Crafts

Hello My Creative Friends!!

I made this mixed media canvas for the amazing challenge at More Than Words Blog.
Here is the mood board of Main challenge at More Than Words.

Word Inspiration "Comfortable" 
and 
Creative Challenge "Color Combo"



The word inspiration "Comfortable" inspired me the most and when I thought about this word it reminded me to create something using this amazing picture of a cute boy. Look at the picture, how comfortably, he was while his photo shoot. This cute boy looking so adorable and relaxed. For me, my family is everything which makes me feel more comfortable. Specially my caring husband and my little boy. They bring me joy and give meaning to my life. I always feel comfortable making projects for my 2 and half YO boy. My boy always feel so shy while his photography and I wish as he grows, I want to make him more comfortable with camera, so I can make loads of art pieces to decorate my sweet home, using his cute photos. My home is most comfortable place for me and I love to decorate my sweet home with one of a kind art pieces and here this is very first addition to my home decor.
This Color Combo is my all time favorite and suited so perfectly with the picture of this cute boy.  I used purple, lavender, blue/light green along with white. Colored the chipboard sentiment "Love You To The Moon And Back" with dark color and tried to depict some amazing colors from Creative Challenge.


 I made this project by altering a rectangle flourish placemat, I used loads of supplies from my favorite craft stores like Itsy Bitsy and Lindy's Gang. I always adore their craft supplies. I am in love with Itsy Bitsy in house line Little Birdie Crafts so much. These flowers are so easy to use and always add extra charm to any project. 
I made this canvas specially for my little munchkin to preserve some memories of his childhood. I just love the way it turned out. 


Few more close-ups:









Hope you love it too as much as I do.
I love to thank my some sweet inspirations mainly Marta, MarilynDi Garling and all my sweet and talented crafty friends who always inspire me to create something beyond my limits. I am really grateful to all of you, my dearies.

Happy Easter:Little Birdie Crafts



Hello Everyone!!
I am so excited to share this post as this card I specially made for my sweet inspirations and friends across the globe. Your friendship really means a lot to me. 
So here I am wishing you all a very Happy Easter, my lovelies.
 See this lovely Easter card, I made for you my sweet friends, Hope you love my little attempt.




Friends, Here, I want to share, so easy and quick process of making this Easter special card . I made it so quickly and really love the outcome.

Easy step by step tutorial of Mixed Media Card "Happy Easter":



I started with preparing the base of the card along with background to add colors, I folded a A4 size Craft paper and added black color piece of paper to give a subtle frame around the card. So I matted the card by putting contrast color papers. 
 I always prefer to add good quality card stock as my base card, which becomes paramount to a good-looking card. 


Then done some stenciling using Mont Marte acrylic paints (Green and Yellow) from Itsy Bitsy India and stencil from iCraft store. 



As I was so much inspired with the mood board of Lindy's March Challenge at Lindy's Gang Blog. So I used Lindy's Starburst spray- Sassy Sapphire and Hi Maintenance Magenta from Drop Dead Diva Shimmer Spray Set of Lindy's Gang, for coloring some embellishments like, some die cut leaves, cheese cloth pieces and random threads/ twines.


After that, I added some elements to make this card more springy and created a nest using all the needed elements like natural brown hemp twine, miniature eggs, different color yarns, some die cuts and colored cheese cloth pieces.  I used some walnut shells to keep these tiny eggs and giving them a natural look. I love, how they look.


Then positioned the nest in a tasteful manner along with adding more die cuts (leaves and foliage).



I added some more leaves to make nest more so natural. After that for final touch, I added some flowers from Little Birdie Crafts. This step I love the most, I enjoy a lot working with these gorgeous flowers from Little Birdie Crafts. 



At the end added some sentiments by stamping " Happy Easter" and "xoxo" and distressing the edges with some VersaCraft pigment ink pads. 

Sharing some more images of finished card, look how gorgeous these Little Birdie Flowers are. I combined two collections of Little Birdie Crafts handmade flowers (Angel Rose- Carnation and Angel Rose- Ocean Mist). These flowers are so shimmery and full of sparkle. I love them so much.









 Hope you all love the way, I made this Mixed Media Card for Happy Easter .
