Rustic garden

Hello everyone,
Today I am here again with a mixed media project that's colourful yet has a vintage appeal. I used Little Birdie's Tinted Metallic Paints and Mixed Media Paste to give it, its texture and awesome hues.

Without much ado, lets see how to get there.....
  1. I  used a thick cardboard for the base and applied Mixed Media Paste as a primer. I just added little water to dilute it a bit.

2. Thereafter that I pasted pieces of lace on the base and created a window with chipboard  as shown in the pictures.

3. Added some flowers onto the window along with few chipboard shapes and also did a little stenciling to make the bricks. Then, I  applied Mixed Media Paste all over the layout.

4. Used some shades of Colour Splash for the background.

5. Added Tinted Metallic Paints  to create the desired effect in the background and the foreground.used rustic paste from finnabair inside my Window and also under the window this is my first try with these paste

I built up the layers of colours until I was satisfied with the effect.
6. I have used micro beads and Little Birdie's Hearty Melange to give it some special effect. Used Mont Marte gel medium to paste these beads in place. Here are some more pictures of my final project....

Hope you enjoyed it. If you have any queries please feel free to ask, I will be happy to answer. Keep crafting and trying out new things....

  1. I took a piece of chipboard and cut it into pieces and pasted them onto another chipboard sheet as shown in the picture below .

3. Applied black gesso all over and started pasting my embellishments in layers.

4. Added flowers, chipboard shapes, and some old knick-knacks from my stash to give it a further layered look.

5. To give more texture to it, I added some fine sand into Little Birdie's Slate Mixed Media Paste and applied this mixture on the base with a knife. I also created some lines as shown in image.also added some art stone for extra texture

6. Applied black gesso all over again.

7. Now it was time to play around with colours!  I used purple acrylic paint for the base first, then used different shades of Tinted Metallic paints. For your convenience, I have given the links of the metallic paints which I used below.

Vintage bottle with crakel medium

Hello everyone Pooja here!
Today I have an altered art project with one step Crackle Medium that oozes out an awesome vintage appeal.
Have a look

Most of you know now how to do simple decoupage,  I have also done decoupage on my bottle first but with a twist....here is the process
  1. I have taken a bottle of my choice. After cleaning it,  I applied Moda burgundy paint all over it.

2. After it dried, I applied one step Crackle Medium evenly all over it.

3. When it was almost dry, I applied Butternut Squash shade of Little Birdie Chalk Paint vertically with a brush. I also added few drops of yellow acrylic paint to give it a double tone effect.

After some time, beautiful cracked effect appeared on the bottle.
4. The next step was to apply decoupage glue on the base of bottle to stick my decoupage napkin. I placed it where I wanted, you can use your own design and placement that pleases you!

6. Did some stamping with Itsy Bitsy stamps.

5. Thereafter I applied decoupage glue on the entire bottle to seal it.
6. Next, I used Mocha shade of Color Splash and used a brush to spread it (used few drops of water to thin it down a little). After it dried, I applied some brown and green  shades of distress ink with a soft hand.
7. Added some  handmade flowers, resin embellishments,  stickers, micro beads and other decorative accessories from the store and my stash to decorate the bottle.
8. Hung some metal embellishments along with a tiny handmade book with "Best Wishes" sentiment.

It turned out to be so pretty that I could not stop at one, here's another one for you.....

I hope you liked my project. Try out different  creations with the Crackle Medium, it's a truly fantastic product to use!!
If you have any queries, please feel free to ask. I will be extremely happy to get back to you.

DT post for itsy bitsy

Hello everyone Pooja here,

I am back again with  another DT  creation of mine for itsy bitsy made with Mixed Media paste and Little Birdie's one step Crackle Medium.  This is totally an experiment for me where I worked with both products to create my background. This is also my first experience with Little Birdie's Crackle Medium, but I am totally happy with the outcome.
Have a look at what I created ....

To begin, I applied Mixed Media paste on a hard board. Before application, I diluted this paste with little bit of water.

2. Then, I used a stencil to form a pattern with the mixed media paste and you can  see how perfectly it worked. Thereafter I  painted the blank spaces, (mostly where I did not do stenciling) with Moda- burgundy paint.

3. I desperately wanted to try out the Crackle Medium, so I decided to use this first only on the part that I had painted. I applied Crackle Medium on that part  after it was a little dry. On top of it, I applied white acrylic paint and soon after,  cracks started to appear.  I was so thrilled with the results that I decided to  create the entire background with it.
For the remaining background I used Slate Mixed media paste and Chalk Paint.

4. Applied Crackle Medium after it was dry and topped it with white acrylic paint.

It looked like this after I was done with these steps....

I used different shades of spray paints (red, blue, brown,black) to coordinate with the colors of  the image at the center.
Next, I just added flowers and embellishments around my focal image and wrapped a twine as you can see in the final image. Also used Mixed Media paste on the edges and on top to create a snowy look!
Have a look

Hope you liked my creation.
Feels nice to hear from all of you, so drop me a line about how you liked it.
