Little Birdie Mixed Media Art Journal


Mixed Media Art Journal 
Hi Friends

Sharing today my work with Little Birdie’s new mixed media art journal and Embossing Paste -Frosty Fizz and Iced Slate from Itsy Bitsy.
I was very excited to receive the Mixed Media journal and Embossing Paste
from Itsy Bitsy and created this sea theme Journal page ....

I decided to work on the Kraft page and have used only the Embossing Texture Paste in Frosty Fizz and Iced Slate to create textures on my page. I have used thin layers of Embossing Texture Paste directly without using Gesso on the page. It is better to gradually add thin layers of the paste and then heat the layers to get textures going  rather than applying thick layers of the paste………
I have used the Little Birdie Embossing heat gun to heat emboss the paste……

Hi Friends
I created this simple cardboard gift box with Little Birdie Embossing Texture Paste  Embossing Paste -Frosty Fizz and Iced Slate and Color Splash by Little Birdie…. 

Applied some Embossing Paste through a stencil and heat embossed the same………the embossing paste gives raised texture. It is possible to build interesting layers of texture , the resultant  texture is tint-able and light.

Sketching faces in Little Birdie Eco Journal Mixed Media

Colored Pencil on Kraft in  Little Birdie Eco Journal Mixed Media 

Hi Friends .....
Sharing some sketches in the Little Birdie Eco Journal Mixed Media.  The different working surfaces in the journal like Burlap, Corrugated Canvas , Kraft and handmade paper allows one to try out various techniques and supplies and it is great fun !! 

I have used Faber castell colored pencils, Charcoal pencils and a white Uniball pen in these sketches. Lot more practice is needed but I get very fascinated to draw faces and these are far from good but sharing nonetheless :)

Perspective.......Reverse Crackle Technique and some Recycling



Hi Friends 

I wanted to try the reverse crackle technique for quite some time and used some mobile display screens which I had saved up.....


I created a set of tags for this experiment......


I stamped the eye with the Tim Holtz Visual Artistry stamp on to the glass with Stazon ink,then used Decoart Fluid acrylic in white over the stamped image . added splatters in metallic gold ,then I applied the cackle glaze and allowed to get tacky. Applied Decoart fluid acrylics in contrast colors . I have added different mats and gold heat embossed the sentiment. 




this is such a fun technique,I do hope you like the technique and the recycling bit  !!

Mini Art -Art on everyday use stuff II



Hi Friends

I find it super exciting to have my art on things of everyday use ....what better than up cycling an old battered worn out mobile cover to get some TLC.......

I have used some DecoArt Black Gesso and then created texture with DecoArt Black Modeling Paste and a stencil ........


Added a die cut covered with Black Gesso with DecoArt Matte Medium.........


Allow to dry and then highlight the texture using Metallic lustre in Vintage Brass, Turquoise, Copper and white frost  ........and you have a masculine looking one of a kind of mobile cover to flaunt......I sealed all with two coats of Soft Touch Varnish...........



When you have the right supplies, this transformation does not take more than half and hour :) If you want to see other Mini Art projects click here , here  and here .........
