Here are the pieces that I have made with the lovely Beautiful Birds collage sheet, I hope you enjoy looking at them. Thank you for visiting now go and have some fun looking at the rest of the design teams blogs.
Matt the image onto some black card and layer it and some Gecko Galz background papers onto a card blank. I edged the card with some black soot Distress Ink using my finger. Add the ribbon, a couple of skeleton leaves and some paper roses.
Decoupaged Framed Bird
Paint the wooden frame with some dark blue acrylic paint, when it's dry cover with Fresco Finnish Crackle Glaze and when this is dry paint with a turquoise acrylic paint, it should crackle as the paint dries. Adhere leaves and flowers to the frame, it doesn't matter what colour they are, using your finger touch parts of the flowers with Treasure Pewter and then spray the flowers and bottom of the frame with green and gold mica sprays. When everything is dry adhere a piece of Gecko Galz background paper inside the frame. Print the image three times, matt one of the images onto some blue card, cut the oval from one of the other images and adhere to the main image with foam pads, cut out the bird from the last image and adhere to the main image with foam pads. Adhere to the inside of the frame.
Song Bird Card
Distress the edges of the image. Sponge the edges of the image and some Gecko Galz background paper with aged mahogany Distress ink and layer them onto a card blank. Stamp some twigs on the right edge of the card, adhere the sentiment, lace and pearls to the card. Emboss a wooden bird with some Frantage embossing enamel and adhere to the card.
Bird Song Tag
Paint the tag with acrylic paint and then adhere a piece of book page to it. Using a leafy mask, stencil some modelling past onto the tag and paint green when dry. Distress the edge of the image and some Gecko Galz background paper then colour the edges with stormy sky Distress ink, adhere to the tag. Put a strip of tissue tape to the bottom of the tag and add some lace. Add some flowers and ribbon.
