Tropical Birdhouse for ScrapBerry's

 
Welcome to my creative space!

I'm back to share my latest ScrapBerry's project with you. The ScrapBerry's Tropics collection is so gorgeous with it's bold, summery colors. It was just perfect to adorn this sweet tropical birdhouse.

The current challenge theme at ScrapBerry's is summer.
You can find all the challenge details HERE.

FTC Disclosure: I am currently working as a freelance designer for ScrapBerry's. While I am compensated in product, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of these products and will not recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.

Tips and Techniques
I've adorned the birdhouse with tropical colored flowers including ScrapBerry's Green Curly Rose and White Cream Daisy. You know I always need at least a little grungy texture, so added Finnabair's Prima Art Stones and Mini Art Stones around the bottom of the house. I brushed them with Lindy's Stamp Gang Golden Sleigh Bells Starburst.

Here's a tip for transforming a wooden birdhouse with ScrapBerry's beautiful paper. I first created a template from white cardstock to fit the bird house, then traced it onto the patterned paper. The cut outs fit the little house perfectly. 

Before adding the paper, I primed the wood surfaces with white gesso, then painted a luscious green to coordinate with the paper.

I've scrapbooked her photo here with the gorgeous Scraps of Elegance "Mix'd Media" May Kit. This gorgeous kit featuring the fabulous Blue Fern Studio Happy Accident Collection paired with their Chipboard Arrow Words was such a dream to work with.

Floral Birthday Card and Tag Set with Heartfelt Creations Petunia VIDEO TUTORIAL featuring the May Scraps of Elegance Creativity Add Ons.

Floral Mixed Media Card/Tag Set by Tracey Sabella with Heartfelt Creations VIDEO TUTORIAL featuring the May 2017 Scraps of Elegance Creativity Add Ons.

Welcome to my creative space!

Do you enjoy creating handcrafted flowers? I simply adore them, so couldn't resist trying out the Heartfelt Creations Petunias in the Creativity and Creativity2 Add Ons. I really appreciate that Melinda does such a great job including supplies in her kits that I will be using for years to come on my projects.

I have several hanging baskets of petunias on our front deck that I enjoy every day as I look out my kitchen window. There is one variety that is particularly appealing to me. I don't know what they are called, but they are a gorgeous fuchsia with yellow/green centers. 
 
I used them as inspiration to color the flowers.

"Mediterranean Dream" Mixed Media Card for ScrapBerry's

Mediterranean Dream Mixed Media Card by Tracey Sabella for ScrapBerry's: Summer

Welcome to my creative space!

Close-ups
 Mediterranean Dream Mixed Media Card by Tracey Sabella for ScrapBerry's: Summer 
 I've used two sheets of the gorgeous Mediterranean Dreams 6x6 Paper Collection for the card base and border. The Borders page had a strip that included the lovely blue flowers that I fussy cut and tucked into the cluster. I added Prills to the flower centers for added texture. The dream sentiment is cut from the Cards 1 page and placed it on a chipboard element to pop it up and create a focal point.

Mediterranean Dream Mixed Media Card by Tracey Sabella for ScrapBerry's: Summer 
Don't you simply adore texture? To color the molding paste, I rubbed Blue Stains Ink onto a craft mat and mixed it into the paste to create a perfectly colored paste to coordinate with the card colors. I used a stencil with a circular design to place this beautiful ScrapBerry's Floral Embroidery Crystal Sticker as well as a few clear domes from my stash. I've also scattered some Prills and chunky glitter for added texture.

The beautiful metal Rosebud Charm and Fairy Tale Resin Flower are painted with gesso, then colored with Blue Stains Ink.

To soften, I've dry brushed gesso lightly across the background as well as over the flowers and leaves.

Steampunk Father's Day Card for ScrapBerry's



Welcome to my creative space!

Father's Day is just around the corner and my husband has always been such a wonderful dad! To celebrate this special day, I've created a steampunk themed card for him featuring ScrapBerry's Words Live Forever Collection. I just adore the opportunity to create masculine projects like this!

Please don't forget!
ScrapBerry's is hosting a family themed challenge during May and June.
Be sure to stop by the ScrapBerry's blog for all the challenge details
and inspiration by the talented design team HERE.

FTC Disclosure: I am currently working as a freelance designer for ScrapBerry's. While I am compensated in product, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of these products and will not recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.

Tips and Techniques 
I hand cut this fabulous stopwatch from the Words Live Together Stopwatches page and popped it up with foam tape to tuck the ScrapBerry's Silver Set of Wings coming out from under each side. I topped it with a chipboard gear from my stash that I heat embossed with dark gold embossing powder and metal clock hands. 

I used the ScrapBerry's Butterflies Wings Clear Stamps to accent around the paper edge for a grungy border. To add texture I adhered silver chunky glass glitter and Prills below the clock.

 
This paper is perfect for a masculine card. The Holiday Romance Chipboard Elements No. 3 collection includes this fabulous arrow. It's so quick and easy to give chipboard a metallic look by heat setting with gold or silver embossing powder.

The grungy background is created by stenciling a grid design with Black Lava Gel Medium. For a subtle touch, I used grey ink to stencil clock designs onto the background paper as well. 

 ScrapBerry’s Supply List:
Words Live Forever Collection ~ Stopwatches (SCB220609308)
Words Live Forever ~ 6x6 Paper Collection (SCB220609310X)

"Precious Moments" Mixed Media Layout and Process VIDEO TUTORIAL with the April Scraps of Elegance Kit



Welcome to my creative space!

Today I'm sharing another project and process video tutorial from the gorgeous April Scraps of Elegance "A Song Of Spring" Kit. I took this sweet photo of our little granddaughter's feet when she was a week old. I did a little Photoshop work by converting the photo to black and white emphasizing these darling feet by leaving them in color. The gorgeous paper and elements in this kit couldn't be more perfect to create a shabby mixed media layout for this precious photo. 

I just adore including handcrafted touches on my projects, so used the leaf image from the 49 and Market Gabi's 49 Texture Stamp Set from the Scraps of Darkenss Store along with the Sage Spectrum Noir Sparkle Marker from the Creativity Add On to create watercolor leaves to tuck into my flower cluster. All the details are in the video.

FTC Disclosure: I am currently working as a freelance designer for Scraps of Elegance. While I am compensated in product, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of these products and will not recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.

In this process video tutorial learn how to:
 ~ Create handcrafted watercolor leaves
~ Prepare your background paper for mixed media with clear gesso
~ Create texture with stencils and modeling paste
~ Add texture to acrylic layered flowers with Prills
~ Add texture with glitter shards and Prills

Enjoy!
