Hi there peeps!
Carrie here with you today to show you a bird themed project that I made with our For the Birds Mixed Media kit. I used the kit to embellish an Ideaology Mini Configurations Book. The best part of the Configurations products is that you can move the little boxes around in any you want to. I played with the layout for a while before deciding on this one.
For the flat side of the Configurations Book, I used the bird stencil and molding paste from the kit. Here's a brief tutorial on how I did it.
I scribbled some Gelatos directly on the surface of the book box.
Then I blended them out using my fingers.
Next I mixed up a custom color of Light Molding Paste using my Gelato.
I scrapped off some of the Gelato and mixed it in the paste.
The paste had some chunks of Gelato in it, but I decided I liked it and left it chunky. I then spread the paste over the stencil carefully filling in the spaces without squishing excess under the stencil.
Carefully remove the stencil and wash off the stencil and palette knife immediately. Let it dry for about 30 minutes. While I was waiting on it to dry, I worked on the boxes.
I had fun combining the clip art, rub-ons and trinkets from the kit in all of the little boxes. I also used the new Bird Beauty stamp set.
I stamped the bird using the same technique I did for the blog hop last week. You can find the tutorial for it here on my blog.
Enjoy the flight!
